Revival series starts in Pittsburgh

Revival series starts in Pittsburgh

The first of six scheduled Revivals led by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will take place in Pittsburgh next month. The Diocese has posted some tentative details of the events scheduled for February 3-5, 2017.

The three-day event, described as “The Presiding Bishop’s Pilgrimage for Reconciliation, Healing and Evangelism,” will include a service of repentance and reconciliation, a youth breakfast, and an Absalom Jones day celebration, followed by a program “to bridge the divides of race and denomination, to engage together in three great works: to help bring recovery from addiction, development out of poverty, and the hope of Jesus Christ into the lives of those around us.”

The final day features a “Sending of Pilgrims” and closing worship. Attendees are encouraged to “bring an unchurched friend” to some of the programmed events.

Each of the six Revivals will have its own focus and flavor, according to the Presiding Bishop’s office. To see more of what the first one might feature, visit the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh website, here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
