The Weekend Update

Lot's to update you on, so read away and spread the word...

Good News/Bad News on iTunes, campers. The people between us and iTunes had some problems with their delivery system this week and all projects releasing next Tuesday (1/24) from our sixsteps label partner (EMI) will be delayed and NOT make it to iTunes for Tuesday. Sad, I know, but don't stop reading! The bummer is that Flying Into Daybreak from Charlie Hall is in that group. We already have a strategic limited release in place for Daybreak--it's available online, at 268Store.com, iTunes, Hastings Music Stores and Mardel Stores only--so we are not too jazzed about waiting on iTunes, but the CD will be available online and at the above stores on Tuesday. Plus, Charlie will be playing songs from the new CD in Atlanta Tuesday night, so if you're in the area/state, come and worship with him and pick up a new CD there! If there are no further surprises, Flying Into Daybreak will be on iTunes by 1/31. The project is simply amazing. I can't wait for you to hear it.


Though the EMI projects got delayed, a miracle happened and ONE made it through... somehow! Yep, the Passion 06 Early Sessions bundle will be ready to roll at iTunes on 1/24. Many of you have correctly surmised that Mr. Crowder and friends will be bringing "You Are My Joy" to the mix, yet no one has hit on song number two. So, we are going to let it be a surprise! OK, we might tell you, but we'll have to wait and see. Also, Joy will be on the Passion 06 CD, while the other song is an iTunes exclusive only. The talk "Passion, Purpose and Designer Jeans" rounds out the bundle (definition-buy all) and will take you back to our time together in Nashville. On 1/24, remember where you were sitting the last day of Passion 06... then, you know what to do! If you weren't at Passion 06, enjoy on whatever day moves you. Plus, we've just finished bundle #2, available on iTunes in late February. More on that soon!



Speaking of iTunes, if you don't have an iPod yet, no worries. Download iTunes to your computer (Macs and PCs) for free, then you can purchase music at the iTunes Store. Once you've bought the bundle you can listen on your computer or burn a disc (for your personal use, of course :>) and listen anywhere. Don't have iTunes? This is your weekend!

The Passion 06 CD (not sure of the title yet), hits stores on April 4 and is going to be amazing. All the great moments and new songs. And yes, a full length DVD with all the songs on the CD and much more will be right behind it, coming your way in early summer. What else can I say, we have heard the people!

But, as you know, Passion is not just about the music, but about everything being rooted in the depths of God's truth. If you'd like to digest the talks from this year, everything is now available (CD and mp3) at the 268Store.com.

Finally, it was great meeting new friends at Auburn last night and seeing some Passion 06 wrist bands that are still alive. Speaking of wrist bands, we ran into HS seniors today from LCA (near Atlanta), who were about to play their basketball game sporting Passion 06 wrist bands, even though they are required to cover them with athletic tape during competition. Very nice touch... and really cool meeting you.

I think that's all for the weekend update. LG.

PS-There's a great Blog post from Mata (Slovakia) below under the Long Road Home Blog. Check it out.

Think. Go. Live. Be. Passion.

    Can't wait for the bundle to come on Tuesday, but more importantly I can't wait for Charlie at 722... it's gonna be one great day... if only I didn't have four classes as well...

  • ok, so i was sitting in the upper bowl on the last day, but there's no way i'll be able to wait an extra 24 hours once the bundle's out...so is it ok if i buy it on tuesday, but then "gift the music" to all my friends on wednesday through iTunes? ;-)

  • Passion Staff,

    Thank you for all you do for us! I ordered my passion '06 speaking series three days ago, and I already got it (and that was through regular snail mail). Thank you for how speedy you are at getting stuff out. Im really excited for itunes. I also really hope that on one of the bundles you'll put Jesus Paid it All. Thats one of my favorites, and I've only heard it at passion! Again, thank you for all you do, it means alot! God Bless

    LOUIE!!!!! glad its the jeans talk. not that i've heard it, but becuase i'm pretty excited about hearing it!

    well, im excited to know what other song is gonna be on there.
    I still think its Shane & Shane. I think.

  • Im guessing the song will be "Salvation is Here" that seemed to be a big hit. Also since it was on the last CD, the second song might be the beautiful piano version of "Indescribable" Both are wonderful songs by far!

    Let me just say how incredibly shocked I was to come skipping out of encounter last night and see you standing in the foyer... needless to say words left me and those I was with, as you probably realized by the group of 6 standing within 5 feet of you openly gawking and whispering to each other "is the really him?" Sorry for that! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed encounter; thanks for stopping by!

    My daughter ran into you today at Phillips Arena. She was the LCA student with a Passion wristband about to play basketball. Thanks for encouraging her. There are thousands of young people in Curitiba, Brazil that need Jesus. Let's take Passion to Brazil.

  • hey brandon,

    Shane and Shane didn't play in any of the main sessions at Passion 06....sad, but true....however, they did a couple of late night concerts during the conference (which was spectacular by the way)...but the jeans talk was very cool...really relevant to college students everywhere...

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/20/2006 10:58 PM  

  • That article about the Swedish jeans is interesting. Louie, since Sweden is "a secular nation which cherishes its free speech and where churchgoing has been declining for decades," maybe Passion should head there sometime soon.
    I went to Passion with 3 other girls form my church. Now everytime we see each other we start singing the chorus of Joy at the top of our lungs! Ah good times, good times!

    Can't wait for Tuesday.

  • Oh, one more thing...

    Any chance that either of the Watermark/Redman late nights were recorded? WOW! How awesome to sit in such a historical place as the Ryman and listen to those wonderful old hymns echo through the room.

    By Blogger iamnotfamous, at 1/20/2006 11:14 PM  

  • Louie, and team

    Can I just thank you all again for the wonderful time in Nashville?!

    Speaking of wristbands, I had to cut mine off to go to the OR (it was traumatic), but I sewed it into my loops box (a nice safe place for the surgical magnification glasses). Now it's sitting there, reminding me why I'm going through all this hard training all the time; and I LOVE it!

    Even better, all the excitement from passion has really carried over into my attitude at work; and a friend of mine had a similar experience last Tuesday night preparing for this week's "worship" at her church. Now, we have 3 people in our lab, all of a sudden interested and curious what our "religion" thing is all about; and they're planning to come to church with us soon! Pray for them and us, everyone! And a fourth lab member is very interested in a Christian book I read and told her about...

    I just can't praise God enough!

  • yeaa. speaking about the wristbands...i still have mine on. and it still looks new...there isnt any rips, cracks or anything on it. i feel like its gonna stay in-tacked for a long time.
    the last time i had a wristband on, it stood on for about 3 months. so this is gonna be about the same i guess. and i dont cut it off, i leave it till it falls apart and fall off. so thats what im doing for this one as well...leave it on till it falls.

    anyway, man...no one guessed the 2nd song correctly YET?? wow, i cant even remember some of the song we sang. man, i want to remember now. (but im really bad at remember the song names.) oh well. just gonna have to wait and find out what it is.

  • i wouldn't mind one of the Tomlin songs that got cut from the Live at Austin Music Hall CD... proper live versions of "your grace is enough" or "how marvelous" or "made to worship" would make my day =)

    By Blogger bwapod, at 1/21/2006 3:54 AM  

  • I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but crowder, redman, tomlin, and hall did a medley to kick off the conference....it was just them four...they came one at a time singing one or two of their songs...they were all mellow sounding with no other instruments...it was sweet! It would be cool to have that to see or listen to again....

    By Anonymous Russell, at 1/21/2006 8:33 AM  

  • no other instruments except guitars that is....

    By Anonymous Russell, at 1/21/2006 8:34 AM  

  • maybe the mystery song is Jesus Paid It All. I don't think anyone mentioned that in the previous blogs... for some of you, you'd remember it as "O praise the One who paid my debt and raises life up from the dead"

    By Anonymous LesDudis, at 1/21/2006 10:26 AM  

  • Wow, full length DVD! That's just exciting! So happy that "You are my Joy" will be on the first EP! I'd really like to see a version of "He Reigns, Forever His Kingdom Reigns!" somewhere because that song was simply amazing, especially the last morning!!! Thank you Louie and Passion staff for all your hard work put into the conference and the materials!

    By Blogger Adam, at 1/21/2006 11:03 AM  

  • The messages at Passion were so good. And when you listen to them for a second time it's just amazing and God leaves you speechless all over again!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/21/2006 11:50 AM  

  • I am excited and luckily will be at 722 to pick up the C. Hall cd. Sounds like a good one. We sang "Song of the Redeemed" last week at 722. And good news on the full lenght DVD. I really missed being there this year and am glad there will be more than 4 songs this year. Although I loved all parts of last years DVD even the stories we would watch at Passion about Boston and NY - I show these to people all the time.

    On a side note - I am a big promoter of music I like to listen to. If any of you are my spacers or just want to hear a good musician who loves God and has a lot of talent, check out
    myspace.com/bryanbrown I haven't talked to him in years, but his songs keep playing on my itunes. Grassroots has been promoting him. He is really talented, you will like the sounds.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/21/2006 11:53 AM  

  • Maybe it's the silent version of "Here I am to worship" -- now THAT would amaze the itunes staff -- why are these people downloading "nothing?" I can't wait...

    Oh, and greetings to all my brothers and sisters all over!

    Live Worship from Passion 06

    how about it????

    By Blogger eshin, at 1/21/2006 1:38 PM  

  • Yes, I agree.....Our God Reigns should be one of them. It was such a powerful song. So Silke, the silent song that was sang was "Here I am to Worship"? After leaving from the community group, I stopped by the GEC volunteer headquarters, sat for awhile, then went to the rehearsal hall thinking they still had it set up for the volunteers to watch, but they didn't. I missed the part on the screen for the silent worship song. I did get to see the other clips on the TV of the ghost writer which was just so amazing. I can just imagine what it was like in the arena at that time......humbling to say the least.

    In Christ,

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/21/2006 10:59 PM  

  • I'm thinking, PAAARRRRTTTTYYYYY!
    Judging by an earlier post, it was stated that Party was an exclusive last minute add to Pssion 06'. We all know how much it was embrased and loved (ultimately we were all partying with Jesus in the arena).
    So, there you have it, I'm guessing Party is the second "suprise" song.

    By Blogger the official blog of aaron dewinter, at 1/21/2006 11:45 PM  

  • I just thought I'd let ya'll know, I have been consumed with living for the glory of God as of late. I've found its quite possibly more thrilling and satisifying when I share about God's glory than it was listening about it.

    For example, my friend and I watched the "Indescribable" DVD the other day, and at the end, all we could do was hop onto the guitar and keyboard (my friend the bassist jumped in later) and just worshipped til 1:30am!!! It was so awesome

    So, as far as the second song, I think we haven't mentioned Charlie Hall's "All We Need"...that one did seem to get played a lot....

    By Anonymous Jon, at 1/22/2006 1:28 AM  

  • 2 Guesses:

    (1) Salvation is Here led by Kristian. Because, if it's an exclusive, that means it will be digital download only... no physical cd's... which means, since it's Hillsong's song, y'all pay royalties, but only on the songs that are downloaded, not for every cd you manufacture. :)

    (2) How Great is Our God, led by Tomlin on piano the last morning. It crossed my mind in that moment: "this is such a BEAUTIFUL rendition of the song... it would be a shame for it to never be heard again simply because it was the title track of last year's record."

    My 2 cents...

    By Blogger Rob Greene, at 1/22/2006 1:52 AM  

  • I gotta admit...when i got my Indescribable DVD in the mail a couple days ago...I held it up high over my head, like that guy Louie talked about with the Xbox 360.

    And on the wristbands...I still have my red wristband on...but it's like, turning dark red. And it's starting to rip, but I'm being as careful as possible.

    Who sang Jesus Paid It All?

    By Anonymous It's Me, Guys! Tony, at 1/22/2006 11:30 AM  

  • Tony,

    Kristian Stanfill sang the song "Jesus Paid My Debt". I am assuming you are referring to it being sung at Passion? Now if this is an original of his or not, I don't know.

    By Blogger Donna Versace, at 1/22/2006 2:56 PM  

  • My burgandy wristband is still on my wrist. It looks like it'll stay for quite a while. It's great being in the college group at my church and seeing people who still have their bands on! We still talk about Passion everyweek!!!
    I've tried to think up the bonus track for the EP, but every song I think of has been listed in other posts, knocking them out of the contest. Oh well...I'll be psyched with whatever the song is! I'm excited that the blue jeans message is on the EP. I wanted people at my school to hear it. Now, through sharing music via our network, they can!! Praise God!

    Thanks again for all the hard work from the people behind the scenes at Passion.
    God Bless!

    By Blogger gRaCe~!, at 1/23/2006 12:22 PM  

  • To Rob Greene (and others who may not know): You can hear Chris Tomlin do his piano version of "How Great is Our God" on his brand new live CD. There are no new songs on the record, which may make it a little unappealing to some, but it is still a great listen. He does a piano version of "Indescribable", as well as great new versions of older songs like "Forever" and "Kindness". Anyway, just thought I'd let ya know. You might want to check it out!

    I am really looking forward to hearing everything. I was not at Passion, but I am so encouraged by everyone's testimony from it. In this celebrity-obsessed, self-centered culture, it is so awesome to hear from young people who know who the real "Famous One" is--Jesus Christ!

DONT BUY IT!!! check back tomorrow and see if is has moved... another words, buy it if it isnt number one so it will move back up! if everyone does this we are sure to keep it at number one for the longest period of time. Lets give a chance for people who may never hear a passion song the opportunity to be exposed to it!!!

    (1) Salvation is Here led by Kristian. Because, if it's an exclusive, that means it will be digital download only... no physical cd's... which means, since it's Hillsong's song, y'all pay royalties, but only on the songs that are downloaded, not for every cd you manufacture. :)
    *****

    Thanks to everyone at Passion for putting this out so quickly... it sounds GREAT! Can't wait to wake up tomorrow and be encouraged all over again by your closing talk, Louie...

  • currently downloading! it's good to be on the east coast =). Hey Louie, something else you might like to know...I'm sure you've heard of Facebook. Quite a few people that went to Passion created photo albums and Facebook groups dedicated to Passion '06! And that's just what I've seen at a few colleges. How awesome would it be to see the facebook ripple effect that Passion '06 has had!

  • PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The passion bundle has finally landed! At midnight, I was notified several many times by friends through calls, emails, and instant messaging that the Passion bundle had arrived. Though having been above that silly yellow line, I must wait one more day. Love the songs chosen for this set!!!! Now for the long wait of the Passion cd!!

  • Hi Louie,

    I know Passion is primarily an American movement and everything, and I didn't go to your conference this year because the US is way too far for me with my student income.
    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaassssseeee can we have the EPs released on the Australian iTunes Music Store ASAP. We all love the Crowders music here and Salvation is Here is pretty popular as well.

    Anyway, please do it soon - you will have no problem climbing the charts at all!

    Thanks for all you put in for Christians around the world. Over here we may only know you as a name off DVDs, but it sounds like Passion is the real deal!

  • I think I know what the second song is...I think it is "Salvation is here" by the 722 worship leader. Just a guess...just a hunch...just a shot in the dark!

    ::Thanks again for Passion06 & for all the hard work that went in to making it truly an experience and a movement worth supporting!

  • UP to #64 on the charts!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1/24/2006 8:29 AM  

  • Hooray! I bought it! I bought it! I actually got it at 11:54 last night, (C.S.T.) and then I bought another set for my friend. It's one thing to hear the songs on CD's a million times, but to hear those specific tracks brought back so many rushes of emotion and I felt like I was there again!

    Great songs...life-changing message...best Tuesday EVER.
