the Call

13 comments:
 
Let's talk about the Call DC. For one thing, are you going? Because you should.

The Call is a massive solemn assembly. We gather and fast and pray for 12 hours... there's worship and prayer... that's it. And somehow, they are the most amazing events EVER. Something about thousands of people humbling themselves and seeking God... He is so there. 

So we have played at or before several of the Calls, and we will be playing at this one. You should go to the Call site and find a way to get there... there are buses coming from churches all over the place. Sleep in a tent if you must, but I wouldn't miss it! 

If you can't go, and you're not just a weenie saying that, then watch it, and engage. It will be streamed all 12 hours on god.tv or if you have Dish Network, the God TV channel. Conrovians- Freedom Fellowship might have a watch gathering- they did for the Call Nashville. That would be an awesome way to join in. 

August 16th, 10am-10pm on the Mall in Washington DC.

I am so excited.... plus, being the history geek that I are, DC is much loved by me.

  3. Lighthouse Christian Center (so therefore myself) is going! We're bringing a whole gaggle of us New Englanders - so far 20+ signed up to go. Plus we're trying to put Lou's 30 or 60 second spot on our local ABC affiliate!!!
    Can't wait - I haven't made it to a Call event since The Call New England in '01 for all different reasons... so I'm really excited about this one...

  5. Man blows up apartment spraying for bugs

    NEW YORK, (Reuters Life!) - A New Jersey man trying to exterminate insects in his apartment blew it up instead, the New York Daily News reported on Monday.

    Isias Vidal Maceda was unhurt in the incident, but 80 percent of his apartment was destroyed, Eatontown, New Jersey police told the newspaper.

    The accident occurred as Maceda was spraying for pests in his kitchen. Somehow the bug spray ignited a blast that blew out the apartment's front windows and triggered a fire that quickly spread, the newspaper said.
    Police told the newspaper that the Saturday blaze also caused smoke damage to the apartment above.
