Was a great first day at Passion 07. The change over of thousands leaving downtown and all of us moving in was a bit crazy, but we made it and tonight was the story of amazing rescue!

Just a quick update to let you know the stream won't be up for a bit...maybe 5 AM-ish. So sleep tight and hopefully it will await you when you get up! Each session will be online for 24 hours, so you can watch.

More later!


  • Tonights session was awesome Louie. Thank you so much for your wisdom. I know that you said get some sleep, but I had to check the blog before I went up to my hotel room. I am looking forward to God's continuous work in my heart. See ya in about 8 hour as ten minutes.

  • Louie,
    You are going to have a nice sunny, mild day there in Atlanta today! Looking foward to seeing last night's session any minute now.

    It's almost lunch time here in Europe. Folks in Asia are getting ready for dinner. God has been working powerfully all through this day as it just begins for you. It's time now for you to rise and taste HIS glory. Courage and Strength today for your team.

I've been to Passion the past two years (was a senior in high school the first year), and I was really bummed out that it wasn't going to work out for me. Thank y'all SO much for allowing us to watch the main sessions! I can't think of a better way to start off the new year (besides actually being at Passion '07)! Thanks!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to still be a part of what is going on down there. By the way, I'm viewing from my parents' house in Roanoke, VA.

  • i'm on a mac and it is working on mine. When you first pull it up, it says that the plug-in won't work. I was discouraged at first, but then i went to the bottom and clicked on "main session one" and the player gave me a choice of either the "flash animation player" or the "windows media player". I chose the flash player and it worked fine. However, if it didn't with you, you can download the windows media player plug-in for Mac from the Microsoft Website.

    I also got my Mac about a month ago, so that may be a reason why it works on mine but not yours(software differences, etc.). Good Luck!

  • Hello from
    Christian_surfergirl1999 from my hang out in NC !! I just finished watching the first night of passion online - Wow !! Louie once again you nailed the message - it's cool to be reminded that we have been rescued by God though his Son Jesus!!

    By now all of you are in session 2. I cannot wait for God to continue his work in all of our lives.

    My question to all of you at passion maybe the new year was a great one to celebrate- For others like me is was sad - loosing a family member. It makes me remember those in the hospital with cancer or other ailments !!

    You know what does God want us to do to reach out to those people who are hurting ??? What will you do this year as return from passion 07 with the opportunities around you? This is the question I ask myself as I prpefare for a funeral knowing that I will see my father (who was actually my grandfather)again in heaven soon !!!

    Again people at passion what is your dream that God has given you and will carry it out instead of talking about it but actually do!! THis my challenge to myself as well as to those of you at passion !!! God bless you as you do the will of our Heavenly Father.

Now my role in the story of Jesus has led me to Japan where I live and serve in Tokyo, and it was SO encouraging for me to get to watch session 1 this morning and to join in prayer, worship, and learning with the rest of you - including my sister who is there in Atlanta for her first Passion experience. Praying for you guys there! PS, it would be totally sweet if you could give a hello to my sister, Christy Miller, somewhere in the crowd :) no pressure...

As much as i still dream that i was there, and able to experience it fully, I thank you with GREAT gratitude for putting them online. I have had the most amazing praise moments from right here in my room, and have learned great and wonderful things about my amazing God. Thank you for making it possible for those of us who are stuck at home sick to be able to experience the Passion.

Direct and to the point works every time!!! When you walked up and chopped that beautiful, perfect flower...well, that said it all. It's soooo sweet to see so many of our future world leaders giving it up to The Lord...there is a way where we thought there was no way! The web cast is making this real for thousands and maybe millions more all around the world. Watching, being blessed, and praying for y'all in ATL from Bayonet Point, Forida.
