9-7-12 – An Event

Every year around September 11, we take time to remember the fallen. The day America changed. Many of us still turn to faith in something around the anniversary. Our hearts still soften to the reality that so much of our existence is really out of our control. But tragedy is not the end. Patriotism is not the sole purpose. There is a deeper meaning behind 9/11. As we turn to faith, on what do we plant that faith?

On September 7, 2012, our community will gather together for one night to remember 9/11/01, but this event will awaken a deeper hope in people that will excite them for their future in America. We want to give the community a way to remember 9/11 by gathering together, and not only that- leaving with hope. Awakening Hope is the sequel event to the Advancing Honor Rally at Sovereign Bank Stadium that took place on May 27, 2011.

Did you know that at the corner of Ground Zero there stands a church? Not just any church–the church where George Washington dedicated our nation to God after his inauguration as the first President of the United States of America. What’s more, the same church actually owned the field that is now Ground Zero at the time of the dedication.

As we remember the fallen, it takes us back to our foundation as a nation, to what happened in that very same spot in a little church. That is why we’re having Awakening Hope in a church. We will remember the fallen, our foundation, but I believe Awakening Hope will kick start something we haven’t seen a whole lot of since 2 Corinthians 8 was written. More on that to come.
