Passion 2013: 60,000 Reasons To Be Encouraged About the Next Generation

History is happening this week in Atlanta that will change the world.  This week, 60,000 young people are assembling at the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta for the Passion 2013 conference, led by Louie Giglio. One of my daughters is there, along with other young people from my church in the Washington, D.C. area, as well as young people from all over the U.S. and many nations.

The Passion conferences started in 1997, and this is the largest one to date.  I have heard about the serious Christian intensity at the Passion conferences, so I have watched several sessions from the live Internet stream, and it is amazing.  Having Chris Tomlin lead a stadium full of young people in worshiping Christ impacts even those watching remotely.    I have watched the powerful teaching of Louie Giglio, Francis Chan and others and realize that something big is going on.   One focus of the event is to work to end slavery and human trafficking in the world.  Social action borne in the hearts of young people by strong Biblical teaching and devotion to the living Christ can transform the world.

The conference runs through early Friday afternoon, and I urge you to tune into some of the sessions and watch.  John Piper, the great preacher and writer from Minneapolis and Desiring God Ministries, will be preaching Thursday night.  You can also review the past sessions at the Passion 2013 website. You will be encouraged.  Take the time to watch this move of God as it happens.

It seems the Biden administration is demanding conformity to its ideological agenda at all costs. And when it comes to its radical plan to change the meaning of “sex” in federal law, it's female athletes who will pay a heavy toll.
