"There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
"A rehearsal of what heaven will be like", is what one of the pastors from a Toronto church said when referring to the multicultural Festival of Hope.
I had tears welling up in my eyes as we gathered with 13 000 other Christians and raised our hands, giving praise to our heavenly Father.
Denominational barriers were broken. We worshiped with thousands of other Christians from many different races, backgrounds, and ages. The Holy Spirit was definitely present in that arena last night, especially as thousands dedicated their lives to Christ. What an honour and privilege to be part of such an amazing event.
