Passion Twenty-Twelve (2012) kicked off last night! While I am extremely bummed that I’m not there this year – (next year baby!) – I’m super stoked that they are live steaming every session, for FREE!
If you have never heard of Passion before, here’s their story and the experience I had with them at One Day 2000. As the founder of Passion, Louie Giglio, states: Passion is not an event, it’s a movement. Students and leaders are not invited to attend Passion, but to live Passionately for Jesus every day and in every way. Passion is about living a lifestyle of worship. It’s more than singing popular songs; it’s about living each day within the heartbeat of God.
For this reason, Passion is big (BIG) on putting our words of praise to God into action – locally and globally. At each conference, their Do Something Now campaign challenges attending students and groups to partner with causes of change, both physically and financially. This year is no different.
The cause is great. The commitment is even greater.
Do Something Now is challenging Passion 2012 attendees to raise $1 million dollars ($1,000,000.00) for those in slavery around the world – especially those who are work and sex slaves.
You and me, who aren’t able to attend Passion in person, can also donate to this cause and goal, too! Follow this link to a page detailing the charities Passion is working with and to donate money towards their ultimate goal of $1,000,000.00.
There are 27 Million people enslaved around the world. There are more slaves NOW, then any other time in history! We must do something NOW about this. The question isn’t “what can you do,” rather the question is “will you do something?”
