In four weeks the Passion tour is going to roll into Boston. It’s their first stop on their regional tour.
On Louie Giglio’s blog he talks about why Boston is so significant and why it’s such a hard city to minister in.
But, beyond the sheer numbers of students and campuses of influence, we are drawn to Boston and New England because of the challenging spiritual climate. People say it’s a spiritually dark city, and I agree. In the little video story we have included you’ll see me down at Faneuil Hall in the midst of a huge election event, talking about people coming to worship Jesus at a Passion Tour event a few blocks away. As I was speaking on camera a women walking behind me, when hearing the name of Jesus, came up behind me and tried to put some kind of hex on me. Strange as that sounds, it’s a fit with the spiritual tension that permeates the city.
There are two great videos at the bottom of the blog post about Passion’s last visit to Boston in 2003. It’s pretty clear in hearing the story of this visit that God has plans for Boston and is making a way through the darkness.
Please pray for the Passion crew as they prepare for the event and let any college students you know in New England about the event. Please also pray that this can be a transformational event for Boston.
