Chris Tomlin is one of my favorite performing artists, and when his Indescribable Tour included a stop in our home town a while back, we determined it was a concert we didn't want to miss…even if we had to listen to some guy named Louie Giglio and endure the eleventy-seventh presentation of the Gospel (a character flaw of mine, I'm not proud of the self-centered attitude…).
Well, Chris did not disappoint–I love his style, his voice, the depth of his lyrics–he's a masterful worship leader.
The surprise was Giglio–enthusiastic, entertaining, passionate, compelling and convincing. His knowledge of science married to his mastery of Scripture resulted in a phenomenal gospel presentation; one that would give the most hardcore skeptic reason to doubt his faithlessness.
I found a series of youtube clips from the tour; here's the first of five clips from Louie's presentation. Once you watch the first one I hope you'll click the links for the rest. It takes a few minutes to get into the rhythm of his thoughts, but once he's gotcha, you'll wanna stick with it to the end…it keeps getting better and better. I promise :).
We saw Chris Tomlin/Louie Giglio here in Houston a couple of years ago. It was AWE. SOME. I was so glad we brought my son and his cousin with us. I actually bought the DVD from the concert and gave one to our youth director and to the same cousin who came with us. I hope this message infected their 12 year old brains forever and all time.
I so get the eleventy-seventh thing! It is tough to find a speaker who can meld a simple Gospel message with a meaty word for those who need more. The Gospel has layers like an onion and often we only get the peeling! : )
I’m looking forward to checking out the videos!
My husband & I went to church near Atlanta years ago and he would preach there frequently. Louie has been given a rare gift for communication. You can’t NOT be drawn in to what he is saying!
Just popped in to say hi…have been on the road for two weeks, mostly without Wifi…miss you.
I saw one video with Louie Giglio – And it was powerful. About the molecule laminin in the body. Our bodies are literally held together crosses. Anyway – it was powerful stuff.
