January 14-16 – Martin Luther King Jr. weekend
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!”
Very interesting article from Kara Powell from Fuller Youth Institute talking about why so many students don’t stick with their Christian faith after high school. (This was on Relevantmagazine.com)
She says there’s a sociologist names Tim Clydesdale— who says after students graduate from high school. They place important parts of themselves in an "identity lock-box," and their faith is often part of that.
Here's a video of modern day Bethlehem. It's actually part of Palestine now and it's heavily armed with checkpoints and strict laws. Bethlehem is in the central West Bank and about 5 miles south of Jerusalem. About 30,000 people live there today. Relevant Magazine did an article about what Jesus would face if he was born into Bethlehem today. It's really interesting- check it out here.

Shout out to my hood! Henderson, Nevada was ranked "the second safest City in America" by Forbes Magazine!
The only city to beat Henderson was Plano, Texas. (A suburb of Dallas) The ratings were based on factors like the violent crime rate, FBI stats and traffic deaths. Here's a link to the whole article.
