I guess the excitement is building up - well, I know I'm excited! It's one week away!
I bought my ticket a few months ago, and have been guarding it to make sure it doesn't disappear on me! This is the first time they are doing the NIGHT OF HOPE in Philly on Friday, July 17 at 7:00 PM
It should be a big turn out - I understand that there are buses from New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Baltimore that are bringing people to attend the Philly event as well.
This will be my fifth time attending a NIGHT OF HOPE event. I attended the very first one they did at Yankee Stadium. It was nearly standing room only.
It is clear that Joel Osteen's message resonates with people from all walks of life, all religions and economic backgrounds. It over arches dogma, fanaticism, and manipulated "religious" organizations, and gets to the heart and spirit of us all. I've had several of my friends of the clergy make disparaging remarks about his message - which just means to me that they've never really sat and listened to what he, Victoria, John Gray and others have to say through the filters of their hearts.
That their messages have made major differences in so any lives - including yours truly - is evidenced by the numbers of people who continue to turn out for the NIGHT OF HOPE, as well as those who attend Lakewood Church - whether physically or online every Sunday, or Saturday, or Wednesday; and those who listen to his Podcast on Sirius FM.
You will never be the same after attending one of these events. Bring your family, friends, relatives, associates - it will do you all a world of Good.
Stay Blessed &
