Revival Camp Day 6
Yes, my friends, we are now totally in Revival Camp. It's been an amazing week, really, in both challenging and yet good ways. These past two days have been something-- with teaching from Lou Engle and George Otis. Engle is a complete fireball-- a revolutionary-- dangerous. He's the guy who called a group of students to 24-7 prayer in Washington, D.C. on the Supreme Court Steps. One of the kids had a dream of someone with tape over their mouth with the word "Life" written on the tape. Engle had the group all duct-tape their mouths shut with red tape and write "LIFE" on the tape. It's now one of the more famous images in Supreme Court protester history. Only Engle says they aren't protesting. "We're appealing to a Higher Court." How about that? It puts Luke 18:1-8 with the widow and the judge in context doesn't it. Where prayer meets justice.

George Otis, a researcher by trade, has been all over the globe studying this phenomenon called revival and awakening. His findings are simply extraordinary. Far from just another "storm chaser," Otis is to revival and transformation what a meteorologist is to the weather. If you've seen any of the "Transformations" documentaries you know what I am talking about. What I appreciate about both Engle and Otis is that they seem to strike the right approach between human responsiveness and Divine intervention.

It's really something to be on this unbelievable campus which was clearly founded as a Revival Camp and which today is a bastion of secular humanism. What's fascinating is the way this group of 70 are somewhat back here in the original intent of the place. We are quite literally camped out in a classroom in the building adjacent to one of the earliest Chapels built on the campus. Talk about mustard seeds. . . . . . . . widows. . . . . . . . . children at play. . . . . . . . It's happening. So we'll see what becomes of it.

I am receiving tremendous encouragement as a result of being here, though I miss my family terribly.

Sounds great JD. I'll be interested in hearing your take when you've digested this experience some.
