We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and Repairers of the Breach to co-host a two-night Crimson Letter Revival on October 1st and 2nd in Goldsboro, North Carolina!
After a night revival launch on October 1st, a full day of workshops will likely be supplied the next day for many who are involved in regards to the methods religion has been used to endorse political extremism and who wish to discover genuine Christian theology and follow that welcomes the stranger, heals the damaged hearted, and lifts up the poor.
“For too long, faith has been hijacked by those who say abortion and sexuality are the only moral issues,” stated Bishop Barber, pastor of the Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina. “They tell religious people to vote their pro-life/pro-family values, then they use their political power to pass policies that keep families in poverty, separate families at the border, prevent families from accessing healthcare and threaten the life of the planet.”
Over the previous yr, Crimson Letter Revivals in Lynchburg, Virginia and Dallas, Texas, have supplied a gathering area for Christians who’re troubled by the general public affiliation of their religion with anti-immigrant, anti-LBGTQ and racist insurance policies and language. Crimson Letter Christians President Shane Claiborne says the objective of those occasions is to advertise “A Christianity that looks like Jesus again.”
Revival providers will likely be held on the Goldsboro Raleigh District Meeting in Goldsboro, North Carolina, and are free and open to the general public. Audio system embrace William J. Barber, II, Traci Blackmon, Tony Campolo, and Shane Claiborne. For extra info on revivalists, workshop leaders, and registration, go to: www.redletterchristians.org/red-letter-revival/goldsboro-nc/
