I have listened to Brannon Howse’s radio program for several years, and learn so much about current events, Christian apologetics, etc. Brannon holds rallies periodically throughout the United States, but one disadvantage of living “on the prairie” is that we aren’t anywhere near the cities where these rallies are held. Before Christmas, Brannon announced that his organization was going to try to hold a live online rally in 2011 that would feature some of his best speakers and topics so that everyone with the appropriate internet connections would have free access to his rally regardless of location. I was immediately interested, and signed up to be a host site shortly after the sign-up began. At first, we planned on just having it in our home for our own family, but we also decided to see if there was any interest at our church. There was enough interest to move the rally to a bigger location! So, Dan went a church member’s house that has a nice large-screen TV that can be hooked up to a computer and tested everything out. It looks like we are all set!
The rally will be this Sunday night, February 27, 2011, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm (Central Time). For those who live nearby, we’d love to have you join our group! (Feel free to contact me about the location). For those who live elsewhere, you all can still participate as well by registering at http://www.worldviewweekend.com/onlinerally/ . There is no fee for this rally, and the speakers should be fantastic!
The speakers include the following:
1. Dr. Ron Carlson, who is the founder of Christian Ministries International. and has written many books including Fast Facts on False Teachings
2. Brannon Howse, founder of Worldview Weekends
3. Dr. David Noebel, founder and president of Summit Ministries
4. Dr. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of historic Moody Church
5. Usama Dakdok, a Christian speaker from Egypt. (I have heard him before, and I would attend this rally just to hear him!)
Some of the topics for this free online rally include the consequences of political correctness, what happens when a nation forgets God, lessons America should learn from Nazi Germany, what is sustainable development, and why the Church wins even when it appears to be losing. This link has more details about the speakers and the topics, and there is still time to sign up regardless of location at this link.
For those who can attend in this area, we plan on making some yummy sandwiches and having fingerfood during the rally since it will last through the regular dinner hour here. It should be a great time–I invite everyone “on the prairie” and “off the prairie!”
