Worship Symposium with Poles

We’ve had five Poles staying in our YWAM style looking basement for two weeks. They came for IHOP’s Worship Symposium. The seminar was awesome. Dr Terri Terry blew our minds away. The participants came from all over the world, mostly from Korea, Russia and Poland. Iwona (my Polish bride) translated 2-3 sessions a day, simultaneously… which is always quite challenging.

But the highlights from these two weeks were from us being able to spend some time with our Polish friends. I realized again, how different the Eastern European soul is from the Western counterpart. They are so…

relationship oriented,

home-cooked food lovers,

late night talkers,

tea drinkers,

down to earth practical, but also unapologetically romantic,

strongly opinionated, critical, but instantly mesmerized by suddenly spotted beauty,

painfully realistic, but captivated by melancholic poetry…

and many other things…
