There is a revolution going on. It’s crisscrossing the nation, expanding around the globe, infecting hearts, minds, communities, families, churches, and souls.

This revolution has taken shape in many diverse, unforeseen, and mysterious forms. People are calling it this, defining it as that, attributing it to this guy or that gal, claiming that it is doing such and such and isn’t doing this and that…whatever.

I’ve had it on my mind ever since.

My vision for Revive certainly hasn’t changed, but the process of getting there has only become more complex.
