There are many choices available to the Christian when it comes to summer. You may like to go abroad to do mission. You may like to serve in your church. You may like to have the summer off being a Christian and go on a secular holiday. But the choice for many of us is to go to a conference or festival. It was New Wine and Momentum which were the Christian conferences of choice for me this year. I have to be honest and say that Momentum is a choice every year without fail for me.
But two days ago, I returned from Momentum. And, as any Christian would know, it is the following two weeks or so that Post-Christian-Conference-Blues sets in. A complete lack of enthusiasm to do anything, a general low, and a very overbearing spirit of tiredness and sometimes incompleteness.
And it was this disease that I currently have which has inspired me to write this post. Because the fact is that so many of us just don’t know what to do with everything we have taken away from a conference. Moreover, we don’t know how to cope without the conference or festival of choice.
I have decided, therefore, to point out some realisations that have helped me, and should help you to overcome the Post Christian Conference Blues, and to use everything you have taken away from your conference of choice for God’s glory, for your personal spiritual advancement, and for the building up of the Kingdom.
So, here we go with the realisations:
