I think God has an amusing sense of providence. These last few weeks have been quite confusing in regards to what I think about Terry Virgo and Newfrontiers and where they are all going. I've switched from faith in God and faith in Terry as a wise master-builder, to fear that he is being courted by Reformed cessationists in a bid to make him "respectable"!
So I noted on Sunday that Terry is preaching at CCK in Brighton and the wonderful Phatfish are leading worship. I really felt a sense that we should go and be there, so go we are!
I'm really excited (and a bit fearful). CCK has always been the most powerful church in the United Kingdom I have ever been to. The Presence of God seems unusually manifest there in extraordinary ways that it is hard to find elsewhere. I've got a desperate hope first and foremost that we will encounter God there in power as He loves to come on the gathered corporate Bride. I hope to be able to sense something of Terry's heart and vision for 2008 (even if he doesn't say anything specifically about Mark Driscoll's visit - which is fine). I can't wait to be lead into the Throne Room of heaven under Phatfish's such Spirit-sensitive leadership.
I promise to post a full report next week!
