Thanks to all those who followed our first live blogging adventure. To my knowledge, that was the first time anyone has ever live blogged a fundamentalist conference in Australia. I’ve appreciated the feedback I’ve gotten so far and would like to hear additional feedback on how to make it more effective and useful to those who read. Perhaps we could use the comments section to discuss that a bit.
One comment from the conference has really stuck out to me over the last couple of days. Phil Pinero, in a youth session, said:
“God is doing what He’s doing in Vanuatu because of what’s happening in Australia.”
That is so true. If the church in Australia is anemic, our overflow will also be minimal. In a certain sense, the greatest thing young Australians can do for the cause of world evangelisation is to be effective right where they are in their own churches. When our believers are brought to maturity in Jesus Christ, nothing in the world will be able to stop them from spreading the gospel. Indeed, “the light that shines farthest, shines brightest at home.”
