He who has compassion on them will guide them
 And lead them beside springs of water.
Isaiah 49:10
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend an inspiring conference.  For the past thirty-five years, my family has been connected with Heartbeat, a non-profit educational organization.  Heartbeat provides “springs of living water” to those who are seeking a meaningful life.
What makes Heartbeat unique is that “while there are millions of Christian communicators and teachers speaking to Christians, there are very few who have repeatedly focused on communicating with those who are outside of the Christian community.”  Heartbeat uses language that connects with those who are searching for life. 
The theme of the conference was “What Really Matters”.  One thing that matters to Heartbeat is being relevant to young adults between the ages of eighteen and twenty-nine.  Several men and women in this age group spoke, and it was startling to see the disconnection between church and the reality of their world.  Please check out Heartbeat.org and consider how you can connect in a deeper way with “those outside the Christian community”.
