Mike Pilavachi from Soul Survivor, has announced, the Soul Survivor Festivals are to close.
There’s a text version of the above found at the Soul Survivor website, which includes a snippet which I’m sure I remember from my Soul Survivor Days. (20 – ish years ago)
“we know that God said, ‘I will build my church’ – he never said, ‘I will build my Soul Survivor’. Our passion has always been to support the local church where faith is lived out as family week in and week out, not to create our own movement.”
I can’t help but think that closing 5 (I think), festivals really shows this.
There was a temptation to say something rude / sarcastic / silly…something a bit “Church Sofa” about all this.
For all the Live CDs, the festivals, books, Delirious / Tree / Sarah Mason gigs.
For that silly Bible365 thing we did on The Sofa.
For the interestingly quiet queues for the shower (during the alter calls).
(In case you need something more silly to read, can I suggested “Spreading Joy At A Christian Festival“, and the related posts – they are possibly inspired in some way by Soul Survivor. Possibly.)
