Turkish Airlines

So I took Turkish Airlines for the first time for this trip to the USA. And you know what? I'm impressed.

Although I'm thinking if renaming them Quirkish Airlines. That is a piece of oasis wrapped in silver foil holding a trio of rose buds in the airplane toilet. Definately quirky!

Recreate conference

I'm sitting in Istanbul airport sipping some coffee and taking advantage of the free wifi to actually post something of substance on this blog. I'm on my way to Nashville to take part in the Recreate Conference, something I have had the pleasure of attending twice before. More than just another worship conference, it is billed as a cultural thinktank for creative people in church and business and attracts an eclectic lineup of speakers and participants every year.

It is, without doubt, the best event I have ever attended, both for the quality of information and stimulating discussion, and for the fabulous and enduring friendships that I have made with other worship leaders from around the world, forged over gourmet meals and fine wines and the best coffee in Franklin.

The icing on the cake is the number of top worship leaders and artists who take part in the conference, both in leading worship and giving concerts. This year Amy Grant is kicking things off with a concert on the opening night, and we will be in the company of greatness for the rest of the week with Leeland, Gungor, One Sonic Society, Matt Maher, Audrey Assad, Ian Cron and many others. Check out for all the details.

Needless to say I'm very excited. Next stop JFK airport in New York where I am meeting up with an old friend to wander round Manhatten in the snow before I fly on to Nashville for the pre-conference hookups and Randy's legendary Superbowl party.
