The Movement and The Music

Passion has always been about the Movement, yet our Movement has always been powerfully wed to the anthems of a generation that is rising up to change the world. Eleven years later that's still the case as we get ready for the release of Passion: God Of This City. Recorded live in Atlanta, Boston and Chicago, this new CD is more than just another compilation of songs (though I'd say the songs are amazing), it's a snapshot of who we are and where we are going as we try to make our lives count for what matters most.

The title says it all (more on that in weeks to come) as we head to the cities of the world with hope that greater things are still to be written in our day. We believe this track (God Of This City) that helped launch our journey in Boston is going to be our prayer for cities in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, Australia, Central America and Canada, as well.

Joining the upgraded iTunes Bundle releases (Shine, You Are God and Amazing Grace [My Chains Are Gone]) are new songs you've never heard and live versions of some you love. Steve Fee and Kristian Stanfill add tracks to those by Matt, Chris, DC*B, Charlie and Christy, as songs from 07 we didn't release (Walk The World [Bread and Wine]) settle alongside those you guys in Boston and Chicago remember well. Fourteen songs in all. Passion from beginning to end.

You can preorder now or get it anywhere music is sold on February 5. And, everyday until then we're featuring a new clip on the Passion home at 268generation.com (it will we playing when you arrive as the main page music!). We're excited, and praying this disc opens the Kingdom in people's hearts around the globe! LG

  • Yes! I'm going to get my pre-order in, and I can't wait to hear the songs from '07 plus the new ones for the regionals- especially God of This City all the way through (I've listened to the clip from the podcast so many times I''ve lost count). And thank you sooo much for making it so reasonable (I don't know how ya'll can stay in business ;). God go before you to LA! We're praying for you!

  • I received the postcard in the mail last week and could not wait to download the new CD from itunes that I woke up at 3 a.m. this morning!!!

    Just listening to Chris sing Let God Arise which is what I need this early.

    Louie what you and this movement are doing for this generation as well as those of the past and the present is AWESOME just like the God we love and serve.

    May your ministry see results in 2008 that can only be the result of His grace.

  • I just got the cd today! Simply put, how amazing! I was extremely ministered by the God-glorifying lyrics while joining in worship with those at Passion Boston 2007!

  • Hi All,

    Love the CD, unfortunately Charlie's song "Sweet Jesus Christ my sanity...chorus-Christ has died and, Christ is risen, Christ will come again"

    I can't find it on iTunes or online.
