The Abante international Colleagues have already experienced the first couple of days, packed full of inspirational moments, fun times, good food, extensive learning, and wonderful fellowship with each other and with guest presenters, and worship leaders.
Guest presenter and instructor Roger Daniel, returned for his fourth year teaching on Ethnocentricity and Spiritual Formation. The sessions prepared the way for cross-cultural encounters in ministry as well as in the marketplace. The group expressed the benefit of having the knowledge of both subjects, as well as Roger’s stories and extensive personal quotes. The team completed both sessions with the realization that it will take several weeks to digest the material.
Abante also enjoyed the participation of the Lead Institute—Georgia team, led by Erin Burleson. Both groups bonded immediately, and after spending two days together, learning, sharing sacred stories, and water fighting at the park.
Truly the Psalmist had it right when he stated in Psalm 133:2, (NLT): For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe.
