Via Dolorosa Weekend 2010

I can't decide whether there are no words or not enough to describe this experience. I witnessed over 20 students boldly live out their testimony for their peers, their church, their community, and through the power of the internet, eventually the world to see. They put themselves out there so courageously, it was incredible. I watched as they became vulnerable and bold, others around them followed. I saw a church full of adults rise up and be bold as well. Proclaiming, "I will overcome." It is amazing how God used carboard and markers to spark a revival. And a group of students that were willing to be opened up and poured out. I will let some of these photos do the talking...

And these are just a few...what is still amazing me is the aftershocks. We had students and church members having church on facebook. We had a Muslim student see us and he took photos and video because he had never seen anything like that before. His sister may just be in our service Sunday. Lord, my prayer is that the overflow continue. The best is yet to come!!!

Via Dolorosa Warrior Prayer Service


Tuesday, October 12, 2010


In honor of our annual Via Dolorosa walk this weekend...

Here is this year's theme song:


The lyrics are so powerful. But the bridge really strikes me hardest...

"We will overcome

By the Blood of the Lamb

And the Word of our

Everyone overcome"

"Everyone overcome..."

"We will overcome..."

When we are Family, when one overcomes, we all overcome.

"...so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others..."

Romans 12:5

Are we encouraging each other to overcome?

Are we using our words to help others overcome?

Are we using our online postings to help others overcome?

Just a thought...
