REVIVAL in Boston With Rev Billy, Tonight and Tomorrow
02 Apr 2005
We're embarking on our revival bus this morning, and we've got about 30 singers, some insisting on bringing lovers and friends...Senior Church Officials have lost control...

Dear Boston Faithful,

I just recorded a short sermon for the Pacifica satellite, called "I'm From The Church Of Pull That Feeding Tube Out, Children!" I'm thinking of Rachel Corrie today, a few days after the second anniversary of her murder in Palestine under the weight of an American-made bulldozer.

I also think of Terri Shiavo, not that I have any choice. This absurd shifting universe of tabloid apocalyptic language, just leaves me holding on to the First Amendment like a raft in a tossing ocean. Finally, there is the right of self-expressed humanity, the right to choose a god, a life, or none of the above. How did America's simplest, defining idea of itself become a mystifying riddle? It's the invention that changed the world, but I guess those freedoms don't create enough money or fear without divine intervention.

Can we work on this, this weekend? If we figure it out -- now that would be REVIVAL!
