I arrived safely in Florida last night and got to the hotel about 1 this morning. Today has mostly been spent planning the workshops we're going to offer and shortly we'll be praying together for the conference. I'm excited to meet new folks and connect with people I know as we seek new ways to share the story of God's love for us.
In our story, Paul has been examined by the Romans. They've found nothing wrong with him, but Paul still chooses to be judged by Rome rather than the Jewish leaders. So they put him on a ship for Rome. Of course, it's not as simple as just one ship. Paul warns that the journey will be dangerous, but off they go. Sometimes we have to go unsettling places to share our faith too.
