"Cancer is the best thing that's happened to me."- Zac Smith

Listening to the 8-Bit podcast yesterday, I heard a clip from this video.  I heard a little bit about Zac Smith's story through Twitter and from various friends, but watching this video brought a whole new understanding.  Zac was on staff at NewSpring Church in Anderson, SC when he found out he had cancer.  I'll let his words speak for themselves, but his perspective in his final days on this earth are deeply convicting.  He has a line at the end of the video where he states that if God heals him or if He doesn't that "God is still God, and God is still good."  God is God and God is good!  Zac Smith went to be with the Lord on May 16,2010.

Watch The Orange Conference Live tomorrow

I just found out that the Orange Conference will be livestreaming the main sessions this year for FREE!!!  If you're not already familiar with the Orange Conference that begins tonight, you need to get familiar quickly.  You can go to and find out all about it.  They have an incredible lineup of speakers including Doug Fields, Mark Batterson, Donald Miller, Reggie Joiner, Perry Noble, and Rev Run!  That's right, the Rev Run from Run's house!  Also, two of my friends: Rick Smith (Thursday 1:10pm) and Scott Austin (Friday at 11:00am) will be speaking at the conference on the main stage.  I love that so many of these conferences are now broadcasting live for everyone to see and experience!  I hope you will join me in watching some or all of this conference live over the next couple of days.
