Soulfest is New England’s premiere Christian festival. This year, Gilford, New Hampshire will come alive August 7-9, featuring Toby Mac, Switchfoot, Third Day and many more. Below is a message from Soulfest’s Founder, Dan Russell.
Life as we know it is riddled with condition. It’s understandable why it is so difficult to actually live the belief that God’s love is without condition. Many of us struggle with feeling we are not worthy, we have a hard time receiving, let alone something of this magnitude. However, if we can actually let go of our fear and stop superimposing our sense of having to earn in order to receive – believing that God’s love prevails – the unconditional nature of God’s love will truly transform us from a fear-based paradigm to a love-based paradigm.
At SoulFest we will be focusing on the unconditional nature of God’s love for us and for everyone. Living, believing this, will change our perspective about ourselves, our lives and the way we view others. Being transformed by unconditional love will most certainly increase our capacity to help those in need; our lives will be as they are intended: abundant, full, radiating and reflecting this life-transforming love.
Our hope is that while we are all together at SoulFest, our individual experiences will bring us past believing in the theory of unconditional love into a deep understanding and surrender to the fact that Unconditional Love is, and always will be, for each of us, for everyone. From this new place, we can Love ourselves, one another, and help those who are struggling. SoulFest is Music, Love and Action. We’re so glad you’re here to experience this.
