Twenty years ago on January 20th the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which became known as the Toronto Blessing, began. This January was the twentieth anniversary and celebrations were held at Catch the Fire Airport Church, Toronto. Some members of the church were able to be there to soak up the excitement and nostalgia. There was a real sense of anticipation; looking forward to what God will do in the next twenty years!
Following an evening of celebration on January 20th, there was a four day conference run by the Revival Alliance, a group of six couples at the forefront of what God is doing. The group includes John and Carol Arnott, Bill Johnson, Che Ahn and Heidi Baker. Everyone got to speak over the four days and the message was encouraging and envisioning.
Throughout the week, the worship was exciting and uplifting – and very loud!
It was a great time to be refreshed, re-envisioned and to meet old friends who have spent the last twenty years in the river of God’s love.
