reclaiming the ivy league, reclaiming the earth


a movement to reclaim the ivy league schools
Originally uploaded by dream awakener.

i was able to catch the 4th article in the new york times that talks about evangelicals reclaiming the ivy league schools for Christ.

the story of how matt bennett after a 40 prayer and fasting time heard from God and moved on his dream is inspiring. seeing how alumni who have graduated from the ivy league schools are funding and finding resources for this project is thrilling as well.

it will be interesting to see how this movement effects the future. we should pray that God would use this movement as well as other movements to take a hold of people's lives in fresh ways in order to see the reality of His kingdom come to earth. that together we can move closer to global justice, illiminate needless violence and hunger and be good stewards of what God has given us.

if we open our eyes, we can see God's fingerprints working all around the world in the most unusual places. may His kingdom come and His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

may God give us the grace to follow Him wherever he leads us, to the poor or to the weathly, to the city or to the country, to the first world or to the third world, to the center of politics - washington d.c., the center of economics and marketing - new york or the center of pop culture - los angeles. if we answer our call, He will surely be with us, and we will see God do amazing things.

just saw the movie you mentioned in your blog a while ago, Hotel Rwanda. A powerful, inspiring movie that I'm glad my kids and I got to see.
It's a movie that changes your perspective.
