“If Jesus came back today, where would he go to make his mark?” the Rev. Steve Rottgers, Diocese of West Missouri’s canon to the ordinary and Awakening organizer, asked rhetorically.
Two places, he suggested, would be the vibrant P&L, as it is known, and Hammons Field, a minor-league baseball park in downtown Springfield, Missouri. Springfield is in the southern part of a diocese that stretches north to south from Iowa to Arkansas.
In Kansas City, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and others will have the Kansas City Live stage from noon to 3 p.m. The venue covers an entire city block and features two surrounding levels of restaurants, taverns and nightspots. The stage area seats 800 people but thousands potentially will be wandering through the venues. Some will be headed for the No Other Pub, which is hosting a sold-out Derby viewing party beginning at 2 p.m. to raise money for two local children’s charities. Some will also be streaming into the P&L District for the 3 p.m. Garth Brooks concert at the Sprint Center next door.
