home again home again jiggidy jig

What an incredible weekend!! I have to collect my thoughts before jumping into it, but until then go here for the details, live blogging, listen to the messages and see pictures. (these 2 were on the site... i know the 2nd one was taken by the amazing jenny james. she is brilliant)

2 things though

1) PLEASE listen to the 2nd message by John Piper (Fighting for Faith with God's Word). It is incredible. They talk about it a bit on the blog, but you really need to hear it. Especially his last few points.
2) Please please please please PLEASE go and buy the newest CD "Looked Upon". It will be extra exciting for all old school CrossWayers, since it is written by Jordan and Devon Kauflin. And Devon is singing the whole time. The songs are amazing. Here are the lyrics to one of my favorites on there

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
