The Delaware River has a lot of historic significance for the early years of the United States. Here I was with a band of over 50 men on the shores of the Delaware River. We could see Pennsylvania State just across the river on the steep bluffs that faced us like an impossible obstacle to climb.
We were there for some historic landmarks of our own. We were gathered to have a time of refreshing from the Lord. We had the full cross-section of men--we had businessmen, bikers, college and high school students. It was a three day event and we were there to seek breakthroughs in our individual lives.
I believe it is the unexpected that touched us the most over those days. We experienced times when the challenges we face as men were faced by all. There were times of repentance, encouragement and healing. So many good things happened it is even hard to pick one. If the changes that came to every man will be real and relevant to them in the weeks and months ahead then the time was well worth it.
Who would have though we would have made recent history in the lives of these men on the banks of the Delaware.
