This thought went through my head as I started learning the whole Bible was still applicable and true for me today. I was so hungry to learn and as I watched teacher after teacher, I noticed I couldn't find just one that I agreed with 100% of the time on every topic. In fact, my own thoughts, opinions, and dogmas have changed over time. They still are! Surely not one person "has it all right".........right? This deep unquenchable search for truth and fellowship landed me on an island by myself......or so I thought.
What if there was a women's conference I could go to? What if I could meet like-minded ladies that are on this same journey I am on? What if I could learn different perspectives on Yah's Word and form my own opinions? I found a million Christian conferences but nothing that was geared towards whole Bible truth. I had a vision of what I would attend but I never found it. And why oh why was there more and more division and less and less unity? Can't we all fellowship together and can't we all just get along?
Then it hit me...I'm a party planner. I've been planning parties since I was 10. This is what Yah is equipping me for. I will host my own conference! I got this! But what does that look like? I don't know a lot but I know unity does not mean sameness...it means oneness of purpose....a Kingdom focused purpose with Messiah as the foundation. If I can stay in that sandbox, everything else is up for discussion. Flat earth? Round earth? Sliver? Conjunction? Tzit Tzit? No tzit tzit? Homeschool or public school? Blood line? Grafted in? Hebrew Roots or Messianic or Torah Observant Christian? Black or white or brown or orange? And how exactly do you say His name? Just scratching the surface of what all this means?
Different answers...same Messiah
SURGE is a safe space to learn, ask questions, sharpen, fellowship and lovingly debate His beautiful Word and how we walk that out as women and mothers and daughters and sisters. We should be able to talk about hot topics and still find ways to pour into each other and find common ground. SURGE is putting aside these "messy antics" and getting to the root of the matter...loyalty to the KING. SURGE sees breaking fellowship over these issues shows our pride, not our love for one another. There is no room for sibling rivalry in Yah's house. Let's experience a SURGE of unity for peculiar women by peculiar women.
And we did....
Surge Texas was born in 2022 and we hope to Surge across America.....Will you join us?
