The Convergence on Eagles Landing:
Just 14 miles northwest of downtown Nashville is a 70-acre plot of beautiful land called “Eagles Landing” that Covergence planners believe has been preserved and prepared for “such a time as this.” We feel the Lord has shown us that we are to begin by uniting together on the outskirts of the city and literally setting up camp on this “Land of Worship and Justice,”‘ says Scott MacLeod. “We are to camp out together as one community, under Jesus, as we offer up a pure sacrifice of extravagant worship to the Lord and intercede relentlessly for 48 hours.”
The continuous worship and prayer will begin at 7 PM Wednesday the 25th of May and will continue until 7 PM Friday the 27th of May. Local, national, and international worship and prayer teams will coverge together as one for the city. Then, upon the conclusion of the 48 hours on Friday night, there will be a great Love Feast and fellowship celebration as convergers prepare to enter the city with an invincible army of “love in action” the next morning.
The Convergence on Nashville
Then, on Saturday the 29th, multitudes of Christians will take to downtown Nashville and blitz the heart of the city with selfless service to the poor and the lost. There will be numerous outreaches launched simultaneously into Nashville’s inner city communities, into the streets with the homeless and the youth, and into coffee shops, clubs, prisons and nursing homes. It will be a day of flooding the streets and alleys of this religious city with “pure and undefiled” religion (James 1:27). “We are to invite the least to the feast…no one is to be left out! Throughout this day of service we will be inviting people to an awesome Jesus party at the riverfront called “Freedom in the River,”‘ MacLeod states.
Freedom in the River
On Sunday the 30th, there will be a climactic worship gathering in the center of the city, called “Freedom in the River.” The conception of Freedom in the River occurred in May 2003 in downtown Nashville, as many churches and ministries united together to offer up praise to God and selfless love to His people. The Cumberland riverfront has been reserved so everyone will come together (converge) with one heart and one voice to celebrate God’s goodness, ownership, and victory over the city of Nashville. “There we will seal the victory with a united expression of the high praises of God reverberating from the center of the city, and we will declare the dawning of a new day in Nashville, Tennessee.”
Thunder on the Parthenon
On Sunday afternoon May 29th, there will be a “Thunder on the Parthenon” from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. On the stage at The Parthenon, there will be a barrage of drum kits, hand drums and percussion instruments leading the charge to take the city of Nashville for God. The percussion will launch a 3-hour “prayer war” for the city of Nashville.
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say, ‘I am strong!’ 11 Come quickly, all you nations from every side, and assemble there. Bring down your warriors, O LORD! ‘Let the nations be roused; let them advance into the Valley of Jehoshaphat (Nashville), for there I will sit to judge all the nations on every side. Swing the sickle, for the Harvest is ripe.’ (Joel 3:9-14)
