Big Day; Please Pray

Today I have two important things happening. First, the Grow Up Conference is starting at North Point Community Church. About 2,500 people who work with children's ministry, youth ministry and family ministry will be arriving from all over the world. I'm looking forward to seeing lots of people I haven't seen in a while. I'll spend some time at The reThink Group's booth, and I'll teach a class Thursday. I'm also teaching a class tonight at the North Atlanta Church of Christ about THE DA VINCI CODE. Many of you have sent me email asking me questions about the book and questions about the Christian faith that the book inspired. I'll do my best to answer several of those questions and prepare folks for the conversations that are sure to arise in the coming weeks.

I'll head out of town on Friday for Panama City, FL. I'll spend some time there with the Palo Alto Church of Christ. I'm taking the family with me, so it'll be a busy weekend.

I say all this to say: I could use your prayers. These are busy times with the release of THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THE DA VINCI CODE and the launch of Faith 2.0. While I'm not the type to suspect a demon behind every bush, I do know that we live in a fallen world where there is an enemy on the loose who is determined to pry people away from God. I feel especially susceptible these days to confusion, frustration and fear.

It's easy to forget to do something simple...like pray.
