Visiting Mars Hill in Calgary: The Body, Soul, & Spirit Expo

Perhaps one of my favorite stories in Acts is of when Paul and Silas visit Athens and the home of the Olympics. Surrounded by their art, there architecture, culture, and the people who were in desperate need to seek a god to which was unknown to them; Paul brings a message of truth, of love, of acceptance, and makes an unknown god become a known God.

Even today his opening statement to the philosophers and teachers seems to reach through the fabric of time and speak to the people of Calgary and even the world as we know it.

“People of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. For as I passed along and observed your many objects of worship, I found also an alter with this inscription, ‘To An Unknown God’.” – Acts 17:22-23

This coming Friday September 19th, 2008 through Sunday September 21st, 2008 the Body, Soul, and Spirit Expo will be coming to Calgary. As I picture the many people walking up and down the rows of different objects of worship and “temples to unknown gods” I cannot help but sense the calling of Jesus to follow in his footsteps as Paul did and live out the gospel message in the midst of these people.

That is why I would like to invite you to join us as we ‘Relax, Sit, & Pray’ with those who will be at the Body, Soul, and Spirit Expo that weekend. Come out with us as together we can Encounter, Experience, and find Expressions of Jesus in the midst of those who are seeking him most. Together we can bring the Way, the Truth, the Life, and a Light into a place where there once was darkness!!

“What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you.” – Acts 17:23


One thought on “Visiting Mars Hill in Calgary: The Body, Soul, & Spirit Expo

  1. Hey Everyone!

    Well, our booth is up and running down at the big four building. Something I realized while I was down there today was the need for prayer. It was amazing to see all the booths offering raiki, healing, meditation… And I could feel the confusion the moment I started walking around. BUT right when our booth opened the conversations and prayers started to happen right off the bat. Scott is a guy who sat and talked for over and hour and received prayer. Most people down there have been in the church, and have left. They really need healing in regards to Christianity. And I saw today with Scott that he was seeing a real, loving Jesus through us.

    Please pray. Pray as much as you can. It’s crazy how obvious the battle is down there. I even recognized in myself a battle over my attitude. I was so negative for a while! The moment I prayed and gave it to Jesus it was like my entire negative attitude was taken away. I’m sure others will be attacked this week as well. BUT we serve the most powerful one, whos name is above any other name!

    Anyway, I might be rambling now. But please pray for the expo. Urge others to pray as well. This is the time to really get before God and fight for the lives down there.

    Thanks everyone!
