“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!” (Luke 12:49)
Early in November, I attended the National Leaders’ & Ministries Conference (sponsored by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal National Service Committee) with four others from the ChristLife Young Adults. The theme of the event was “IGNITE,” and the weekend included inspiring and insightful talks from a variety of speakers with plenty of praise and worship to fill the time in between. I wish I could point to one salient speaker, topic, or nugget of wisdom that impacted me more powerfully than others to make writing a testimony easier. Instead, the overall atmosphere from the congregation of people and prayer precipitated a subtle and deep transformation within me, and I understood this spiritual fruit in the week following the conference.
