Glimpse of Heaven

I posted last week about the Passion '07 Conference attended by over 20,000 college students. I thought I would give you a small glimpse by posting this song from last year's Passion Conference in Nashville.

My brother was there and said he had never had a corporate worship experience quite like this. It was the last night of the conference. The over 18,000 students and leaders returned from breakout groups and sat in the arena in complete silence for an hour guided by words and throughts on a screen reflecting on Christ. Then they were led in this precious hymn and chorus by Kristian Stanfill and the Passion team.

This video brings tears to my eyes! For me, this is about as close to experiencing what heaven is going to be like that we can get. Multitudes praising Him together with hands lifted high. We will come together across nationality, denomination, music preference, culture, and so many other diferences to praise our Lord in unison. Won't that be amazing?

Thank you for sharing that video! As I was watching the different pans on the crowd, I saw a young lady on her knees worshiping. How amazing that when the Spirit moves us to worship that it can be so different. There have been times where I needed to fall on my face and times I needed to stand before my Lord lifting my hands to Him. I love God's ways don't you?

God bless,
Emily

I live way out in the boonies. They don't offer anything but dial up here, so I can't You Tube. I am sure it is great though. I remember conferences like those and it amazing. We need more of those as adults.
