There are thousands of youth here this week. Last night walking into Main Stage for the first time was pretty amazing — to see so many people in one place, all of us here to worship God. Carey pointed out that thousands of people also go to the same arena to yell and scream about basketball games, people jumping up and down and hugging complete strangers over a game. But how amazing is it that for this week all of the thousands of people who gather in that arena are gathering in Jesus’ name? We were reminded that wherever two or more gather in God’s name, he is there with us. God was definitely there with us last night.
