musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

Manchester Passion

Saturday, April 15, 2006

a quick post (not supposed to be at the computer today!!) to say... Manchester Passion was excellent - almost guaranteed to get people interested in the story of Jesus. A great bit of mission!!

You didn't tape it by any chance? I thought I'd taped it but I must have stuck the wrong times in.

It was absolutely sooperdooper.

I read that it was initiated by BBC and non-church (non-christians?) and some churches participated because they were invited to do so by the non-church.

But some churches felt it was too... profane???!!!!

Isn't this the Kingdom of God? God left the church - who has left God to follow its leaders, meetings, buildings and songs - and God got found by the World (where the Church was commanded to be!!!!). So the World seeks God out and invites the Church to learn with them!!!!

Well, ManPash is a good example in my books. The smart money is on God-in-the-world; the only god-in-the-church is the Consumer (I say in all humility.... erk!).

Although, Kieth Allen can't sing for shit.

Richard - yep, I've got it on DVD!!

damnflandrz - couldn't agree more, and what I was really impressed with was the fact that they didn't manuipulate the story in any way to fit the songs. The songs were just put in and sometimes worked (see coming post!) and sometimes didnt, but hey - what did it matter! I must admit to having a 'hair standing on the back of the neck' moment several times while watching it - it was great seeing the story told in a way people could relate to and I'm convinced (no research done - just a hunch) that some people who went for the buzz would have been turned on to the Jesus story and to discovering more about such a compelling man. T'was great )in my humble opinion!)!

can't agree more....this was a great event attracting people to JESUS...I was there and there was an awesome silence in Albert Square at the end of the production. I will remember it for a long time to come.

I can tell you that as I gave out leaflets about Jesus after the end of the production, telling the folk it was about CHRIST - every single person except for about 3 took the leaflets and thanked us. We had an indepth talk with some young people who were ignorant of yet very open to hear the good news

Is it a sign of the last days that such a public declaration of the Christ was made in the streets of one of the most needy cities in our country. God is calling all men everywhere to repent to avoid the judgments that must inevitably come on the wickedness that is rampant in our country.

Manchester, like Ninevah in ancient biblical times, can repent and be restored to the CREATOR GOD

God will use whatever vehicle he needs to to speak out about HIS GREAT SALVATION so that all might come to the knowledge of HIS SON/THE TRUTH.....this time it was the BBC not a donkey as in ancient times when GOD was trying to bring a misguided prophet of Israel to his senses!

Bring on more open proclamation of the GLORIOUS GOSPEL!
