On Revivival, from 2013

I originally wrote this in 2013 after attending a Revival at Solomon Community Temple, dove-holy-spiritand I am thinking about it as I prepare for a Wesleyan Revival class at my Church this summer.


Time to Come Clean–John 13:9

We sang a different arrangement of “I am on the Battlefield” last night at the 2 Night Life Changing Revival at Solomon Community Temple, but it was just as good!
Preaching by Rev. Dennis Oglesby Jr. was awesome.
“The modern English word revival descends from the Latin word, revivere, which means to live again. In the context of Christian revivalism, which initially found expression in America during the First and Second Great Awakenings (circa 1730-1740 and 1800- 1840), revival related to repentance and conversion.

“Churches conduct revival services in myriad ways. From tent settings to the traditional sanctuary venue, churches host worship services geared at shifting the mood, activity, and commitment of congregants, leaders and cities. Revivals energize the community…”
I love the energizing.
Thank you Solomon Community Temple for hosting this revival.

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
