Two recent posts by South African Christian bloggers have jumpstarted my thinking today. The first was a review on Thompson’s Two Cents earlier in the week regarding the Grace Ministers Conference. The second was Thomas Scarborough, a minister, thinker and commentator, who made an insightful observation regarding Christian conferences on his blog this morning. Thomas says,
Is it fair to measure the success of a Christian conference using the following metrics: The Worship, The Speakers, The Fellowship and The Venue; and if so what should the weighting for each be?
Is it true that the connections made at conferences often outlast the impact of the content? Is this a problem or should it be like this by design?
