We are getting a better grasp of the greatness of God!!! While the Psalmist declares: Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise, His greatness no one can fathom. Psalm 145:3 We are learning more about that greatness as we share what God did during REACH 2024. Thanks again to those of you who responded to the original post about God’s work at REACH. As we learn more, we celebrate and praise more. But God wants this celebration to keep going!!! Since that post, I have had several conversations with REACH attendees where we discussed the impact of REACH 2024. Here are some more highlights from that week: 1) One first time attendee put it this way, “I was impressed with the humility of the godly men in the room. I felt honored as a woman and at no point felt the need to compete.” 2) One returning participant said this year was “tremendous.” He really enjoyed both speakers and the breakouts he attended and loved the simplicity of the logistics of the various meeting places. 3) Another first-time attender said, “I felt cared for and loved by many different participants and REACH leaders.” 4) One returning participant came with two other staff members. On Wednesday night after they got back to the hotel, they were downloading some of their thoughts from the second day. This turned into a several hour discussion that branched into some very key subjects never before fully addressed. This brief list illustrates more of the work of God that no one individual can pull off. God is the author, using the collective group, of these and many more “awesome works”. We need you to add to this list. At REACH, we try to EQUIP, CONNECT, AFFIRM and INSPIRE in order to catalyze and further unite the movement of gospel-centered, reproductive sports, rec, and fitness leaders in local churches. Where did you see a work of God in these four - EQUIP, CONNECT, AFFIRM and INSPIRE? Post your answer in the comments.
