Simulcast – August 1-2, 2008

My mom has had a lot of interesting phone calls in her life. I used to sit at the bottom of the stairs and listen to her talk on the phone when I was a kid. I wasn’t hearing both sides of the conversation, mind you. And if it was important mom would go talk in her room. Even so, there was some interesting stuff to listen to!

Yesterday’s phone call beat all. Mom got to have a conference call with well over 300 host site leaders for the August 1-2 Living Proof Live Simulcast. I can’t even wrap my mind around that! Over 300 people on their own phones, all connected at once! I’m amazed! I wasn’t listening in this time because I thought it would be awful to have Jackson squawking about his Cars! Fast cars! and Monster trucks! in the background.

The conference call reminded me that I should let all of our blog readers know about this simulcast opportunity. If there’s not a Living Proof Live event in your region this year, or if you can’t attend the one near you for whatever reason, you may have another chance to experience Living Proof Live.

The LPL event in Louisville, Kentucky, (August 1-2) will be simulcast to host sites throughout the country. That means there may be a church in your area where you can go to watch the live broadcast of the conference. I hesitate to say “watch” because it is much more than that. You are actually a participant. My church in Irving hosted the Get Out of That Pit simulcast in 2007 and it didn’t take long for me to forget that we weren’t actually at the main site. Hosting the simulcast was a great experience for our church. We loved getting to bring women together from sister churches all around our community. If you can’t find a satellite site in your area, it’s not too late to become one!

Is anyone already planning to attend the simulcast?

    I’m orgaznizing a group from my church to go to a simulcast location near us in the Cleveland, OH area. We’re very excited about it! This will be the 4th simulcast by Beth that I’ve attended – they ALL have been wonderful!

    Yes; my church is actually one of the host churches – First Baptist Dallas. I am planning on attending and helping out with this. Can’t wait for August – I get not only this simulcast but also am attending the event in San Antonio. Hoorah!

    Let us lift up the Steven Curtis Chapman family as they deal with the loss of their precious Maria.

    My best friend and I will be at the “live site”. The church is in a great location. My trip is two-fold; conference and visit 90 yr old aunt in assisted living. See you there. Carol – Memphis,TN

    Please pray for our Church. I asked the Women’s Ministry Team to consider being a simulcast host. We are the largest body of believers in this area but they feel that there won’t be enough to attend to make it worthwhile. The closest one is about 35 miles which isn’t far but still….please pray for me to have the right attitude and if it’s God’s will that they change their minds.

    I didn’t see any dates for Canadian churches. I would so love to attend one in Manitoba. Any hope of that?

    I just read that the 5 year old daughter of Steven Curtis Chapman was killed in a tragic accident. She was hit by a car her brother was driving. Just wanted to let you all know – so the Siestas can pray for that precious family.

    Our church is hosting Beth’s simulcast in August. I attend a small church in northwest Oklahoma and we would love to have Beth live here at our church, but for now this is the next best thing! Beth…come see us! You will love it here!

    Hey Amanda, good to hear from you again:)

    You know, I was given the opportunity to go the actual event with my mother, who I really pray receives a word there.:) I had bought the local ticket by then, and ended up giving it to another sister-in-Christ on a temp assignment. Lord willing, I’m still coming in August.:) coffeeandbiblegirl, I would like to meet you too, maybe our two groups could meet up? Deeper Still next mo. is coming up for me first, so Cheryl, we might be able to meet up to?:)
