Social epidemics are driven by the efforts of a handful of exceptional people.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14)
What role will you play in helping Virginia reach the tipping point for transformation?
In March 2005, my life changed forever when I met Rick Heeren over the phone. TODAY the lives of many people will change forever when they meet Rick. This morning Rick will meet briefly with pastors and marketplace leaders in Culpeper where they work. Then from Noon-1:30 PM, Rick will meet with interested people in the conference room of the Culpeper Library in a small group setting.
From 6:30-8:30 PM on June 20, Rick will share and teach in the large meeting room of the Culpeper Library. There will be a 30 minute reception for Rick before and after. Everyone interested in making Culpeper and Virginia a lighthouse for the world is invited to come.
Today an epidemic of prayer evangelism is being ignited in Culpeper that will rapidly spread across Virginia, America, and the world. God is shaking the very spiritual foundations of our state today. We are experiencing a major spiritual earthquake setting the stage for the upcoming spiritual tsunami. How did this come to pass?
On December 25, 2005 my daughter gave me the “The Tipping Point.” Her note in this book read “Dad, This isn’t a ‘Christian’ book per se, but I think you will find it interesting and informative none-the-less. Merry Christmas! Love, Caren. P.S. I believe you are a ‘Connector.’ (You’ll understand when you read).”
Coming as a Christmas gift from my “favorite daughter” (and only daughter), I quickly devoured that book. That book gave me a new perspective on how epidemics are able to rapidly spread around the world. I learned “Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do.” For the first time, I understood the 3 ingredients necessary for world-wide epidemics. I realized the power of intense focus.
God’s timing is always perfect! Caren’s gift came just in time to impact my top annual goals that I wrote down at the start of the 2006 year. One of my top spiritual goals was “Ignite an epidemic of prayer evangelism in Culpeper that will rapidly spread around Virginia, America, and the world.” By now, I’ve read and prayed for that written goal hundreds of times. The Holy Spirit imprinted it on my heart.
