Our third stop on the tour was the capital of Idaho–Boise. This was the third state capital we have done an event in. (The other two being Helena and Denver) And the Egyptian Theater, where we had Skull Church, sat downtown just a few blocks away from the Idaho State Capitol Building. The Egyptian is this rad, super kitschy historic venue that was originally called the Fox but was garishly done over with over-the-top egyptian-swagger to commemorate the discovery of King Tut. It feels like you are on the movie set of The Mummy. Things to check off my bucket list: Preach under an enormous, golden scarab beetle.
I love Boise. In the last few years it has become one of my favorite cities to visit and I like it more each time I spend time in the city. From the downtown with a big-city feel and the University with it’s much loved Broncos stadium to the river that runs right through town and mountains within striking distance you have the perfect blend of urban and outdoors. There are killer restaurants, and a lot going on. From what I can tell, the people that call Boise home are laid back, easy going and not super high strung. In my estimation the quality of life is good in this gem of a city that comes across as much less imposing than a city of it’s size often does.
We saw God do a great work and many were impacted by the love of Jesus. I pray that all the churches that participated in the event will continue to grow and take new ground in this awesome city.
