TheCall-San Diego: Sights and Sounds

image_thumb

 

According to the news reports, there were 33,000 at Qualcomm. Also, according to the paper, we were all bigoted anti-homosexuals there to spew out hate and to rant and rave for an entire day against same-sex marriage.

I guess that reporter phoned the story in without ever bothering to show up. If he did come, he must have been there between noon and 1 pm only when we were praying over Prop.8 on the California ballot—which would authorize marriage between a man and a woman only, and over-turn homosexual marriage in the state.

During that time we were joined by the Catholic Bishop of San Diego who had arranged for 1,500,000 Knights of Columbus who were committed to pray with us during that hour for California and Prop.8.

Those who showed up yesterday were an encouraging mixture of different kinds of churches and races.

The usual evangelical and Charismatic leaders were there taking turns leading us in prayer, including Dr. James Dobson and his wife Shirley.

The Black church was well represented in the stadium, with a number of pastors and worship leaders who lead us in prayer and some flat out wonderful/powerful worship music–including one group who did Christian Rap–the 10,000 or so kids on the field went crazy.

Also, there were tons of Latino Christians there –at least once an hour or so a Latino pastor would lead prayer in Spanish, also some of the worship music was in Spanish and along with some bi-lingual songs.

Everywhere I looked there were Asian Christians, Korean and Chinese pastors also lead in prayer along with a number of Asian worship leaders. A huge number of Asian kids were among the 10,000 or so down on the field.

Well that is an account of the sights and sounds, GodTV covered the event live and is planning on running replays so you might be able to catch some of it.

I found the day to be invigorating for my faith and encouraging for the future of the church in California. Stay tune, there is more–and it’s revival related!             *Top

Baptist Pastors Conference: Prepare for Revival

‘Preparing for revival’  is the major theme of the SBC Pastors’ Conference in Indianapolis June 8-9. Under the title, "Prepare for Rain," the conference will focus upon the role of prayer and brokenness in spiritual renewal. image According to Pastors’ Conference President Michael Catt:

"…but the reality is we don’t have praying churches that are longing for revival. If there’s not prayer and brokenness in revival, our churches are not going to do a better job of evangelism because carnal people don’t have a burden for lost people."  …

"The Pastors’ Conference needs to be for guys who are rolling into town on four flat tires, ready to resign. I’m praying that God so moves in that room that it’s no longer about where are we going to eat but it really stirs the hearts of every man and woman in that room toward doing something different for God. What would happen if 5,000 pastors — who influence between 2.5 and 3 million people each week — got desperate before God and walked into their pulpits different men the next Sunday?"

Response: Pray for the SBC Baptist pastors. I really do believe that God wants to bring revival to that denomination and touch the millions in their churches in a fresh way.            *Top

Charismatic Leadership Summit -2008: Some Random Quotes

Here is some interesting quotes from various leaders at the January 2008 Charismatic Leadership Summit from a MinistryToday article:

  • "You’ve exited your calling when you seek to please people."
  • "The overriding power of a church is in simplicity."
  • "I am committed to still believing that we don’t have to acquiesce or surrender the power of God in order to win a generation. If we’re going to win the Muslim world, if we’re going to win America over, we need to demonstrate the power of God.
  • "Moves of God and revivals themselves are not the endgame; the kingdom of God is the endgame."

Response: It is good to see some of our Pentecostal/Charismatic leaders dealing with some of the issues that have plagued the American church in this generation. Follow the link and read all of the quotes. Also read this article written by Steve Murrell who attended the meetings.             *Top
