with one another, and who all came together to worship God as the Body of Christ. Throughout the day there were different sessions on how to be a true man of God. Then there were multiple daily times of worship together. These
kinds of gatherings are always so interesting because even though the sessions were helpful for so many people, you could tell that just spending time with fellow Christ followers was life changing. It was for me.
One of the most moving times of the whole weekend was during one of the worship gatherings. The man leading the service announced we were going to celebrate the Eucharist together. He then asked for a representative from each country of the former Yugoslavia to come and serve the elements. I couldn't help but think this was such a unique and wonderful time of brotherhood and healing. For an area with such a tumultuous history, the Spirit has an amazing way of moving men beyond their differences, and into a place of unity. These men represented to me the power of the Holy Spirit in the region. God is moving here in BIG ways. The Spirit is at work. The love of Jesus is permeating the lives of every person, one-by-one.
