The American Presiding Bishop Michael Curry completed the first of six planned “revivals” in the next two years with his first stop last weekend in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The 3-day series of events reported good crowds, multiracial and ecumenical leadership, youth events, four of the PB’s patented stemwinder sermons, and music by the Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church choir and lots of Amens. “Episcopal Church, we need you to follow Jesus. We need you to be the countercultural people of God who would love one another, who would care when others could care less, who would give, not take,” he told the gathering at Calvary Church in the Shadyside neighborhood. He plans other revivals in the Dioceses of West Missouri, Georgia, San Joaquin, Honduras and a joint evangelism mission with the Church of England in 2018. (Photos and reportage by the Rev.
