Revive 2010 is a renewed call for justice

Revive! 2010 is a revival, which spans many Christian denominations. The group is hosting an event in Trenton, NJ, between June 11-13 at Trinity Cathedral. The purpose of the event is to renew "Christian faith, dynamic worship, preaching, and conversation with some of the brightest minds and hearts of our era," according to event literature.

Featured prominently in the field of speakers is one of America's most provocative intellectuals, Cornel West. According to the Revive! 2010 biography for West, "his writing, speaking and teaching weave together the traditions of the black Baptist Church, progressive politics, and jazz."

Other speakers include: Brenda Salter-McNeil, Bart Campolo, Shane Claiborne, Gabriel Salguero, James Logan, William Nemon Heard and Jonathan Walton.

According to the group, Revive! 2010 is about "reviving justice." Consequently, the upcoming event will focus upon "the prisoner and the stranger, we will center on two of the great issues of our time: incarceration and immigration."

The steering committee for this group is comprised of Presbyterians, Baptists, Catholics, Episcopalians, non-denominationals, Evangelicals, Mainliners, and everything in between.

NYTS is not affiliated with this event, but it is wonderful to see this kind of work being done. For more information, go to
