SURRENDER 17 - A Reflection & Highlight

Sam Hearn

The Spirit is to us as light is to a window, as wine is to a wineskin, as a feast is to a table…

‘The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear the sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.’ John 3:8 NIV

One of my standout moments from the SURRENDER 17 Melbourne weekend happened on the final morning of conference. The Larche Listening and Speaking group shared a simple and incredibly powerful reflective piece with us all. 

It was centred around a table. Friends being welcomed to a meal, candles lit, smiles and warm hugs offered, everyone home. It moved from being a drama on the stage to a shared experience as the performers moved into the audience with hands outstretched, inviting others to join them. Suddenly it wasn’t a performance on the morning’s run-sheet anymore, but a perfect summation of all that the weekend had been. 

Tears streamed down my face as I shared a space round that table with so many other smiling faces greeting one another, appreciating one another, loving one another. For me I saw and felt Jesus presence in that moment through the life and presence of those around me in an incredible way. The Spirit shone through each of us like light through a window, His presence in and through us was the feast at the table. 

So may we be filled and made new as we go into the world, seeking to embody the way of Jesus, vessels of His life into the places He has called us…
