I almost missed this whole thing, but God got me in on it at the last minute.
A friend of my wife’s and mine asked us to play in the worship band as part of the Dallas Tent Revival 2007. More for a reason to play my guitar than for spiritual reasons, I accepted. This was on Friday. Since then, I’ve realized that this event could be one of the biggest things to hit Dallas, and possibly the nation, in a long time.
Here’s a quick summary: a local man, Kyle Martin, felt the call to put together an event that lasted 40 days and brought together all the churches of Dallas for a traditional tent revival in the downtown area. He felt that call 6 years ago. Long story very short, he’s managed to organize 40 different local pastors from churches of all sizes and 7 worship teams to facilitate this event, starting Monday night, April 9. The way people have come together in a short period of time has been nothing short of miraculous, and I’m pretty excited about what can happen.
I’ll let the website speak for itself. Read this article from the Dallas Morning News, too. Also, if any of you are local, pick a night to come out. My wife and I will be playing with the Dallas Bible Church band, which will play on Sunday nights during the revival, starting April 15. If you’re not local, pray – and check out the “Inside the Tent” link on the website. It features a great daily devotional.
