I write to encourage you to slow down for a minute and consider a gift: take a close look at the upcoming 4th annual Duke summer reconciliation institute, May 28-June (April 1 application deadline). And pray on it, as this space is dangerously beautiful – based on past experience, I assure you these 6 days could change your life. Nearly 400 people have attended the institute the past 3 years, and we have seen this become a place of breakthroughs: personal, organizational, missional.

A number of you I’m writing have attended before, and you know how unique and powerful this space is. Perhaps you should bring a team from your church or organization this year.
