This post is somewhat delayed, I’m still working on posting regularly. Passion 2011 was amazing, awesome, humbling, refreshing, renewing, challenging and inspiring. Things are changing, God is doing something and I am thrilled to be a small part in the movement He is behind. So much went down in these four days, much of it I won’t attempt to put into words but I will share a few glimpses as best as I can.
John Piper spoke at the last evening main session, I wasn’t in the session and don’t know exactly what he said but I saw it in the eyes and faces of the attendees as they filed out of Philips Arena, silently going to their Community Groups.
I went in to Passion this year somewhat spent, not sure if I had much to offer. I didn’t, but as I was emptied of myself by the end of the second day, the Holy Spirit came in and miracles happened.
As the days of the conference wore on, anywhere I went, I saw students praying. In twos and threes, in larger groups, with homeless people, it was everywhere and it was thrilling.
Do Something Now was, as usual, amazing and they raised over a million dollars for causes around the world, but more important than that, as important and wonderful as it is, are the thousands of college students all over the world who have caught a vision for the Kingdom of God and His glory. I can only imagine the long-term effects they, and I, will have on this world.
I didn’t take many pictures, but here are some of the ones I did take.
