iTunes Cometh!!

A welcome breather from the Tour finds us hanging out in Memphis again (twice in one week!) on our way to Mississippi. So, seems like a good time for a Passion CD update.

We are down to the wire on the production of Passion: Everything Glorious, and it's slated to hit stores 4.4.06. And for those of you dying to know, included will be Glorious, Our God Reigns, Everything Glorious, Jesus Paid It All, Party, We Win!, Center, All We Need and more! Thirteen tracks in all and you'll feel like you're right in the middle of it again...in fact, much of the CD is just you singing at the top of your lungs.

But 4.04.06 is a ways down the road, so iTunes bundle #2 is headed your way next Tuesday, 2.21.06. These bundles are quick mixes from right after Passion 06 and this time...there's no suspense. The latest bundle, the "Brown One," contains Chris' new song "Made To Worship" and Charlie's acoustic version of "Center" from the opening night where all the guys played together, both exclusives to this Bundle. The talk is from night one: Satisfied, a look at the XBox360 rage and the balance between God's glory and our satisfaction.

By the way, if you didn't know, all the Passion talks are available here.

So, last time out we did pretty well, but can we hit the top of the iTunes chart? Would be nice to see songs about Jesus and a talk about Him sitting in plain view. Well, lower and upper levels may partake at will, so scrape 15 quarters together and get ready. Remember, buying the bundle together is key and, as a fun bonus, should the "Brown Bundle" hit the top, a preview of "Party" from the upcoming album will appear here on the Blog within an hour!

Oh yeah, we are totally depending on you Blog readers to help us make this happen, so make sure everyone you know who was at 06 who wants in knows about it.

For His renown,


  • ok people, lets get the word out about the download and the "party" song incentive!!!!

  • Dear Mr. Giglio,

    Thank you so much for keeping this blog going. Your updates are helping me to stay focused on the things that God began in my heart and life at Passion in the midst of a crazy schedule back in the 'real world'. The music was such a big part of the Passion experience and I am so excited for the new bundle next week. God is using you in such a powerful way among this generation. Thank you for following His call on your life. Blessing for the rest of the tour. Come back to Boston one of these days!

  • wow awesome. I've been waiting for "made to worship" since the live recording at austin music hall. was sad to see that it didn't make that CD, but... ya know what they say - better late than never~

  • Oh my gosh, I am soooo happy! The Passion 06 CD comes out April 4th????? Perfect, only 15 days before my birthday! I am stoked about the new Passion bundle, and can't wait to get it (even without the incentive of PARTY!!!)

    By Blogger Carly, at 2/13/2006 10:29 PM  

  • Louie, is there any way you can get the itunes bundles to be released world wide!!!???
    As I have mentioned before we are in Australia and my son tried every way possible to access it. I also saw some other post from Oz and also Ireland too saying they couldn't get it. So if there is a way, maybe we can help you get it to No.1.!!!

  • Dear Mr. Louie Giglio and the 268Generation,

    Wow! Passion was absolutely amazing! I still can't get over how much those four days changed my life! God really spoke through you to me and it's left a lasting impression. I am also really excited about the songs on iTunes! "Made to Worship" is a beautiful song and I'm glad there are more coming.
    I will be praying for you all as you head towards Jacksonville, FL next weekend(my hometown! :)) Unfortunately, I can't get home but I pray that the people there will receive your message and that the worship music will speak to them in a profound way and dig into their hearts. I pray that they are humbled by an indescribable God and desire to live their lives for Him, and Him alone.
    I hope that God blesses you on the rest of your tour and continues to do immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine! Ephesians 3:20,21

    P.S. If you ever can, please visit us at Florida State again! God has been doing some amazing things on this campus and within our ministry this past year, and we can only imagine what else he has in store!

  • Louie... please tell me that "Come and Listen" will be opening the CD this year.

    There was no more perfectly resonant song with where I was at coming in to the week, and the way we both started and ended the week with it, I think it would just be a shame to not have the honesty of Crowder's voice and lyric as the opening of the live CD.

    Could you please let us know?

  • I had one more quick thought... iTunes is currently doing a countdown to their 1 billionth song downloaded... wouldn't it be cool if it ended up that it happened next Tuesday and the download of the billionth song was one of the songs from the Passion bundle... just think how much of a statement that would make!!!!!!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2/14/2006 10:05 PM  

  • Louie,

    I came away from Passion '06 a changed person. God spoke to me a lot that week and showed me that I had not been putting him at the center of my life. Since then, I have felt God's presence unlike ever before. It will be a joy to see you guys again this friday in Auburn. I'm so excited to see what God will do. And as for the Passion '06 CD, I can't wait to hear all the inspiring songs from this year. "Glorious" was truly one of the most moving songs of the conference. I can't wait till it comes out on the CD. I pray and thank God daily for you, Chris, and the rest of the gang involved with the Passion movement.

  • Wow, what a night. Thank you for everything you do. I think the first time I heard you speak was at a RA Congress in Waco back in 88. God always speaks in incredible ways through you. I was blessed enough to hear God speak through you yet again and to hear you guys tonight in Hattiesburg. More importantly, I saw a picture of God and how incredible He is. I wrote this during and just after the "break," for lack of a better word.

    When I Think About Creation

    When I think about creation and how big the universe may be,
    I wonder why he made the earth, and all that came to be.

    When I think about creation and how small this world seems,
    I wonder why He made us, knowing everything we’d be.

    When I think about creation and how insignificant I am,
    I wonder why He sent His Son, and sacrificed the Lamb.

    When I think about creation and how the Creator died for me,
    I learn that I am mistaken, because His life was not about me.

    When I think about creation and all that God has done,
    He reveals to me his glory: why he sent His son.

  • Hey Louie,

    I am a big fan of Passion and believe God is using you guys in mighty ways. You have definately been a blessing to me. I am sure the new tracks will be awesome. Praise God! It's a pity the bundle's are only avaliable on Itunes US. Any way of making them avaliable on iTunes UK for us Brits or even for download on the 268store?

  • sweet. i found three quarter and a dime under my car seat at work today... but i bought a mountian dew. so i am down to a quarter and a dime. i imagine i can scrape by though.

    the past couple day have been Glorious for me. i randomly wore one of my campus ministry's shirts to work monday. happened to be one with Abba really big on the front. since then my boss and i have been talking about thinks like winter jam (newsong ministry) and what artist we liked and what not. its been pretty awesome to say the least. we are gonna swap a couple cds. i introduce him to the new school stuff and he shares with me the old school stuff. pretty great. God is so AMAZING in the smallest ways.

    thank you!!! i am never going to look at the way i pray the same way ever again.
    I am already blessed!!! just need to tap in to what He has and is doing every second of my life.
    i thank you Jesus for that truth.
    show me how I can bless you, in what I say, think, do, act, see, read....everything Lord,

  • Louie,

    one talk in particular that you did about 2 years ago at 722 sticks out in my mind - where you talked about George Washington Carver and his experience with God and how he asked God to tell him everything about peanuts and then how he shut himself up in his lab for some crazy number of weeks and ended up inventing some crazy number of peanut products. i would much like it if you could tell me a reference to that story because it's way cool. thanks!

    glory to HIS name!

    By Blogger Brooke, at 2/16/2006 5:31 PM  

  • and not that I did not know what He has already blessed with, the focus is O F F us (me) and put back on Him!! so thanks again.

    now go and be a blessing!!!

  • I've seen how all you people who read this blog come together and pray for one another. This weekend (Feb. 17-19) is a weekend called Discovery Weekend. This takes place in one of the towns close to the Dallas Fort Worth area in Texas.

    It is college students doing interviews through Go Now Missions, to become student missionaries. If you have time, maybe you could help pray for this weekend, and for these students.

    To view the Prayer Calendar go to: http://www.gonowmissions.com/prayer

    Or to be apart of the Virtual Prayer Team go to:
    chain.html to sign up for a time slot.

    Just pray for these students and that God's Will be done this weekend.

    Thank you Passion Bloggers!
    God Bless!
