“Indeed, while following the way of Your judgments, O Lord, We have waited for You eagerly;
Your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls.”-Isaiah 26:8 (NASB)
I had great plans of writing last week, but my schedule was more hectic than I thought it would be.
From January 2 through January 4, I was able to take part in the Passion 2017 worship conference (268generation.com) in Atlanta, Georgia.
For 20 years, the Passion movement has been going strong, led by Louie and Shelley Giglio. They have been changing the lives of college students from all around the world and they are going to continue doing so for the glory of God.
At the core of the Passion movement is Isaiah 26:8. They long to see college students come to grow stronger in their faith or begin their faith journey , “eagerly waiting for the Lord and desiring His name to be known deep in their souls.” You can feel it from the very moment you walk through the doors of their event.
This year, it was a gathering of over 55,000 college students and leaders in the Georgia Dome. They had the opportunity to hear from some well recognized Christian teachers/pastors and sing praise with some of the top Christian worship musicians.
It was incredible!
There is just something about being in a place with so may people lifting their voices to praise Jesus and discover new truths about their Creator and Savior. I was watching hands raise and hearing voices shout for our King.
I am dedicating this week of blogging to the Passion movement. It is surprising to me that there are so many who have never heard of the conference, so I want to do my best to share my experience (I have attended for 7 years as a student and/or leader), and try to spread the word about such an amazing opportunity for any college aged student or senior in high school around the world.
Check out their website, the link is above, and follow my posts this week to hear about the teaching and the way they allowed everyone in the Dome to make history together.
I am looking forward to sharing with you.
