Our Community Group is awesome. There is a girl in our group who is in college and wanted to attend Passion. It happens once a year and it's basically a Christian conference with amazing worship leaders and speakers. It's like Woodstock for Christians. It's geared toward college students.. claiming Isaiah 26: 8 "Yes Lord, walking in the way of your truth, we wait eagerly for You, for Your Name and Your Renown are the desire of our souls."
She wanted to go, but couldn't afford it. So, our group collected money and surprised her with $300 + to attend the conference. It was in Atlanta and she was traveling there with some friends.
I talked with her this Sunday about it and she of course said it was amazing. She said that God did a lot of things there not only in her heart but in other's hearts. One of the workers at the Georgia Dome (where the conference was held) became a Christian... just from hearing what was happening there. Awesome.
Another thing was this song. She said this song did it for her. She was so in awe of Our God and how big He is. That He is all over the world working... and we are in one place having our one experience, but He is vastly bigger than our one experience. Check out the song for yourself.
The words are.... How great is our God. Sing with me how great is our God. And all will see how great how great is our God. The name above all names. Worthy of all praise. And my heart will sing how great is our God.
I was thinking about what she said. And I see it too. Some of our greatest friendships have been with Christians from other parts of the world. God is the same wherever He is. And worthy to praised in all the nations.
