Dallas area churches and church leaders are collaborating to bring a "JUSTICE REVIVAL" to Dallas, Texas!
Mark the dates on your calendar: November 10-12, 2009 at Market Hall.
The preacher for this 3-day meeting will be Sojourners founder, Rev. Jim Wallis.
As he outlined in his latest book, The Great Awakening: Reviving Faith & Politics in a Post-Religious Right America (order thru CDM below to the right), Wallis makes a direct connection between religious, faith revival and all of the great movements for justice and social change.
Historically it has been the case that whenever people come to faith, communities change for the better--slaves find freedom, voting rights are spread, public policy is better informed, economic justice arrives and the ways of heaven are realized on earth.
There is no real revival without accompanying societal change.
Unless what is preached is, in fact, "good news to the poor," our message and our plans are all wrong.
Plan now to join us for this revival of faith and community action!
If you are interested in being involved in the planning of the event, send your email address to me at ljames@CentralDallasMinistries.org.
