Sherry and I are leaving Corpus Christi, TX, after a wonderful Called & Gifted workshop, which included another great dinner at Hester's Cafe. About 200 people attended the workshop at the cathedral, and were very enthusiastic. Last night, over a wonderful meal that included a blackened amberjack salad, delicious lump meat crabcakes, and the best latte I've ever had (courtesy of Hester herself), I had a long conversation with Gerardo Hernandez, the energy behind The Encounter, a ten-week kerygmatic workshop that includes a mid-course weekend retreat that focuses on the Holy Spirit. Gerardo is an incredibly energetic, scripture-quoting lay evangelist who has seen the power of God at work through the over 9,000 folks (mostly, though not exclusively Catholic) who have gone through the process in the last eight years.

If you'd like to learn more about The Encounter and Body of Christ Ministry, which Gerardo leads, you can locate it here. And you should check out Hester's site, just to get your mouth watering...

Oh, and about the title of this blog... This morning I had the opportunity to gambol in the waves of the Gulf of Mexico. Tonight I'll be in the remnants of a snowstorm in Colorado Springs. What a life!
