Yesterday AnGeL Ministries, the ministry of Anne Graham Lotz, announced plans for a worldwide simulcast to occur on September 11, 2011 – the ten year anniversary of the 9-11 attack on America. Titled “A Wake Up Call for the Church with Anne Graham Lotz and Joel Rosenberg,” the simulcast will feature messages from both speakers and will be broadcast into churches and homes.
Why select the tenth anniversary of 9-11 for a simulcast? Alluding to the recent Qu’ran burning controversy, Anne Graham Lotz says, “This 9/11, one small church in Florida is capturing the world’s attention … [W]hat if this time next year, churches all across America marked [the] anniversary – not by looking around, but by looking up and getting right with God?”
Lotz continues, “I have long felt the original 9/11 attack was allowed by God as a wake-up call for His people,” she says. “But did we sleep through the alarm?”
An urgent wake-up call may be needed, but Lotz is hopeful: “My prayer is that this simulcast … would serve to gather the church and reissue the wake-up call to the hearts of Christians everywhere. It is my prayer that it would refocus us on Jesus as our Hope for the future and re-ignite such an intense longing for His return, that we live the rest of our lives with no regrets.”
