I’m in sunny Fullerton, CA for the Second Annual Asian-American Leadership Conference (AALC2008). I’ll try and do some live blogging. It’s definitely great to spend time with folk like Tim Tseng (ISSAC), Eugene Cho (Quest Church), and Gideon Tsang (VoxVeniae) just to name a few. I was pleasantly surprised at the East Coast turnout for this event. One of the things that I find valuable at these kind of conferences is the different voices and perspectives represented and not just from the stage. There are Asian-American pastors and leaders from all walks of life and traditions here. We all want to be good at what we do as leaders. We’re striving to be better. However, it’s ok that we are different. It’s ok to disagree and be a little uncomfortable at times. We’re here to learn from each other.
Lisa Espineli Chin started things off tonight by turning our attention as pastors and leaders towards rest and sabbath.
