Justice Revival begins tonight

The Dallas Justice Revival is starting tonight and I hope to see many of you there! This has been in the works for a number of months now and it’s exciting that the time has finally arrived. What I’m most excited about is the opportunity for people in churches across the metroplex to come together for a common purpose. The list of churches and people who plan to attend come from such a breadth of Christian tradition and from such diverse places on the theological spectrum- it’s both impressive and wonderfully hopeful, and I’m proud to be a small part of it. If you haven’t heard of the Justice Revival yet, here’s a brief synopsis from the website:

Our Mission:
Over three days of prayer, preaching and worship, the body of Christ will awake to new life, uniting to answer Jesus’ call to biblical justice.
By the end of 2010, our prayer is that at least 200 Dallas area churches will answer this call by:

•Creating 25 partnerships with public schools
•Advocating for 700 new units of permanent supportive housing

And here’s a schedule of each night’s lineup:

Tuesday – Call to Conversion & Unity
Lead Musicians — Salvador & Jaci Velasquez
Special guest — Mayor Tom Leppert
Main Speaker — Rev. Zan Holmes

Wednesday – Call to Community
Lead Musician — Fred Hammond
Main Speaker — Rev. Sam Rodriguez

Thursday – Call to Justice
Lead Musician — Israel Houghton & New Breed
Main Speaker — Rev. Jim Wallis

Hope to see you there! And if you haven’t registered, please do so here– the event is completely free but they’d love to get an idea of how many to expect!
