Next month, Jess and I have the privilege of speaking at The Blue Conference hosted by Fairfax Community Church.
We love the mission of this conference and are so excited about speaking and even more so, about attending the rest of the conference! Here’s a peek at the mission of BLUE.
We spoke with the Senior Pastor of Fairfax CC last week and we loved hearing about the church’s passion to break down the divide between church and the rest of our life (including our vocation- whether it be work or SAHM). 99% of our time isn’t spent within the walls of our churches, so we need to focus more on how to be exceptional and cutting edge in all we do outside those church walls, while still continuing God’s mission for us to spread the word and live out the gospel. We’re pretty stoked about it for sure!
We’re going to be speaking on the topic of “Home as Retreat vs. Home as Community.” We’ve come to the conclusion that we feel our homes should be used as both Retreat (get away from the craziness of life, rejuvenate, refuel, etc…) and Community (a place to bring people together, invest in people’s lives), but often times it’s one or the other or neither. As we’re getting ready for the conference and planning our presentation, we thought we’d ask our closest pals… YOU GUYS!
So, if you have a minute or two and wouldn’t mind sharing your thoughts on any or all the the questions below (answer in the comments section) we’d really appreciate it and it would give us a good idea on how the masses are feeling about a few topics.
We’ll be sure to fill you in more about our findings and share more about our experience at The Blue Conference, but for now, we’re just excited to be stoping and thinking about this issue in our own lives. As DIY home bloggers we want to make sure it’s never just about the pretty- and so much more about growing in our relationships as a family, with God, and with others!
Thanks for your help friends!!
