COLLEGE STATION, TX — At Breakaway on Tuesday night, the Christian bubble at Texas A&M burst.
At the crescendo of the famous song by David Crowder, “How He Loves”, the bubble became so full of raised hands and loud voices that it simply could not hold up any longer. The pop echoed throughout College Station, causing waves in every fountain on campus.
“It was amazing,” Breakaway speaker Ben Stuart said. “I could really feel the Spirit moving.”
Reed Arena employees immediately called the fire department, as well as the company that dried the Blocker Building out to clean up the mess. Students were carried out on the backs of other students. The occasional “Carry each other’s burdens” resounded through the arena.
No serious injuries have been reported, but tales of humble service have been flooding social media.
“PTL for the Godly man who rescued me from Reed tonight. Meet me at Mugwalls tomorrow?” tweeted sophomore psychology major Sarah Abrahams.
Speculation is heavy as to why the bubble suddenly burst on Tuesday. Jeff Johnson, worship leader of Breakaway, has reportedly played that song multiple times. The bubble had stayed intact until that moment.
Many believe the explosion is the result of recent massive expansion of the bubble. The release of Impact counselor emails on Monday and subsequent reveal nights have strained the wall of the bubble to its breaking point.
“Yeah, I was just at Breakaway with my new camp when we heard this huge pop and then total chaos—shout out to Omega Naphtali though!” John Mark Davidson, freshman RPTS major, said.
Whatever the reason, the bubble has burst. University authorities have taken steps to ensure the cleaning of Reed Arena. As for the bubble, students say that its flood is still persisting and will not be contained or controlled in the foreseeable future.
