The weather is cool, but the air refreshed after overnight rain. But the air seems to always be fresh in the mountains. The mountain get-away is also filled with anticipation and excitement as the Mount Hermon Christian Writer’s Conference officially begins in a few short hours.
Some of us have been here for a couple of days as faculty, resource team members, or pre-conference mentees. Each of us has already made new friends and renewed those old connections. I think we are all looking forward to the main event.
The afternoon newcomers will receive information at the Newcomers Orientation while the returners gather for a reunion. Faculty and attendees will mingle at the Meet and Greet, then the workshops begin.
As we share meals, chat in the coffee lounge, or walk the trails, we sense the real reason we are here. God has directed us to this place at this time for his purpose. Faculty, resource team, and attendees will leave changed. Some will have a God-moment in a workshop session or divine appointment with the perfect agent or editor. And some of us will have our minds and hearts filled with just what we need to move forward in the writing we have been called and gifted for.
For those who could not be here, please join us with prayer. Let God move and intervene in miraculous ways.
