Astonished that over 1000 attended Unity Meeting at Tremont Temple
David Manuel gives an account of the unity meeting at Tremont Temple on January 20, 2006 : "Astonishing is the word that comes to mind, to describe what happened at Tremont Temple Friday night.
For those who may not have heard about it (and many have told me they'd have come, had they heard), a little over a month ago, Roberto Miranda, Pastor of the Leon de Juda Church, invited everyone with a heart for revival to gather Friday evening at Tremont Temple, 7:30 to 9:00. I heard he was hoping for 300-500. My own expectations were more dour: 200-250, tops. But there was not much notice, though Alex did interview Roberto on WEZE and shifted the daily radio invitations for the Noon hour over to Roberto's event.
When Alex Canavan and I got there at 7:00, the main floor was already a third full. And people kept coming. . . . familiar faces from the Noon hour, from Leon de Juda, and some whom I'd not see since same-sex marriage demonstrations at the Statehouse two years ago.
The music team from Leon de Juda was electric, as we sang in English and Spanish (thanks to the transparencies). The overall mood was exuberant! We could not believe how many of us there were! I know God is not impressed with numbers, and I do try not to be. (Well, Father, there are not many here tonight, but I know that you've brought each one. . . &c)
Not Friday. As Roberto shared his vision for what God was doing and was about to do in Metro Boston, every seat on the masin floor was taken. The first balcony was mostly full. The second balcony had people in it. Ergo, it would not be evangelically speaking to say there were some 1,200. Certainly there were way over a thousand -- and that's a lot of candles!
The Noon Hour is having its first evening event on the Thursday after Easter (April 20), but after the astonishing turn-out Friday, I suspect there will be other gatherings before ours.
Anyway, come to Tremont on Wednesday, if you can. It will be a lot quieter than it was on Friday, but the Presence of the Lord will be every bit as strong."
