accountability round-up

i’m in denver for a few days, for my annual meeting with the “young notorious sinners.” actually, we’re not that young, we’re hardly notorious, and well… yeah… one outa three. the name (and shape) of our group came from a group mike yaconelli and a handful of cronies had, which he writes about in his book “messy spirituality”, called the notorious sinners. we meet annually for four days for a sort-of accountability thingy. we each take a few hours to talk about our year, and ask a million questions, dig into the messiness and stuckness and pain and joy of each others’ lives. this group — now 7 guys — has become life family to me. one lives in toronto, one in atlanta, one in the san francisco area, one in new york, one in denver, and two of us here in san diego (actually, two of the other guys work at YS, but neither of them worked at YS when they became part of the group). this year is a bit weird, because one of the guys can only join us for the last 24 hours, and another is still trying to figure out if he can get a flight to join us at all.

i’ve posted about this group each year, and some accompanying thoughts about accountability. so i’m going to post links to those here, because i’ve noticed those posts still receive traffic, and the occasional incoming link…

ACCOUNTABILITY IS A SHAM (my 13th post, from back in the day!)
