Why is it that some of the best conversations happen at 30,000 ft.? Some of the best conversations I have with strangers are on airplanes.
On the flight to San Antonio, I sat with someone who had just attended the inauguration. The interesting thing about the conversation was something he said about being there. He told me the best part of the event was hearing Rick Warren.
I sat there and was amazed by what he was saying. He didn’t give me anything real specific about what Rick Warren said… he was just very impressed and that he was the best part.
My flight back I sat next to Ann. She lives in Atlanta. I was reading The Barbarian Wayby Erwin McManus. (Yes there are going to be a couple of more posts from this book). This opened up a great conversation about purpose and seeking God.
After I finished talking she asked me if I ever fasted. She went on to tell me that she is reading a great book on fasting that is/was on the New York Times Best Seller list. It’s called Fastingby Jentzen Franklin. Some of the things she said to me reminded me of what Craig Groeschel had to say while at Catalyst.

I wonder if the conversations are always so good at that altitude because so much prayer goes into each flight?
