5 Things I Learned at Passion

Ashley and Michelle

I just got back from Passion 2013. It was my first time. {I know. I know. I was way too self-consumed in college to ever commit to a trip like this.} And although I was a guest and have outgrown their target audience, I had a blast! It was an incredible way to kick off the year.

If you aren’t familiar with Passion, from January 1 – 4, 60,000+ college kids gathered in The Georgia Dome to worship, to connect, to hear from some the leading voices in Christianity today, and to stand for the oppressed. Over 3 million dollars was raised to combat modern forms of human slavery. Pretty cool, huh?

Passion Evening

And what do you know? God taught me. 36 year old me, some stuff. Here are 5 things I learned from my time at Passion.

1. God isn’t subtle about delivering messages He wants us to hear. Nope. You NEVER KNOW who God is going to use to speak to you. Open your heart and your ears.

2. There is NOTHING BETTER than gathering around a table with a few like-minded women and swapping stories. Forget the small talk, let’s talk about our fears, our hopes, and how we have seen God at work.

3. David Crowder’s new stuff is brilliant. BRILLIANT. Bluegrass done beautifully. I can’t wait to hit up another one of his “Hoedowns” soon.

4. Judah Smith can PREACH. He might be my new favorite teacher {except Pete Wilson, of course, he’s always tops} but Judah, well, he is funny, relevant, passionate, and drives a message home like few others.

5. We are nipping at the heels of a REVIVAL. Click here to read my Deeper Church post on the subject.

What has God been teaching you?

Lindsey has a sincere love for her precious dog Molly, a good red wine and the Delta Sky Club. She spends her days (and some nights) laboring to end childhood hunger at Feed the Children and to gather, equip and unleash women at IF:Gathering.

    I went to Passion 2013 as well and felt it was a great way to start off the new year. I really used it as a way to acclimate my walk to the heartbeat of God. I loved Judah Smith too – my first time hearing him speak. I hope to attend his church this summer when I fly to Seattle. I also felt Gary Haugen’s talk was something I needed to hear for my own awareness. Blessings from AZ.

    I love this!! I love that we all feel it!! Something is stirring up!! Something Awesome is about to happen!! It’s so exciting!! I so don’t want to miss it! I do not want to be part of the crowd that is too busy running around “chasing my tail”

    Haha! I just figured out that this could be what God is trying to teach me!

    PS: I love. Love. Love. reading about your life!! Thanks so much for sharing!
