MATT PAPA-OPEN HANDS
I spent the end of last week in Atlanta at Passion 2012 and the coolest moment for me was standing next to Matt Maher as they were closing out the night on Wednesday.
Matt Maher wrote all the music for Passion 2012 with Chris Tomlin & Jason Ingram. They spend 2 weeks at Chris Tomlin's house writing back in April, and then they came back in November and finished them up. As I looked out over the Georgia Dome at 45,000 college students singing and yelling with their hands in the air, I looked over and Matt Marr was standing next to me.
He was yelling out the words he wrote and pointing his finger up in the air singing, “ We raise our white flag, we surrender all to you…. It’s all for you…… we raise our white flag, the war over…. love has come…. your love has won!”
It was such a powerful moment. I could feel the emotion he had watching Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill, David Crowder & Matt Redman leading the crowd in worship while 45,000 people responded to the the heart behind his words.
Here's a video of that song!
They’re doing another Passion Conference in Vancouver, BC at the Rogers Arena on March 23rd. You can find more info at 268generation.com
