Preparations underway for 'Peacemakers' Revival
Ask Pastor Dewey Moede if he's ready for another revival in Windom and he'll answer the question with a question: "Can we start tomorrow?"
The Windom native returns to Windom Nov. 10-11 for a second revival in as many years at the BARC Auditorium in Windom. But the list of featured speakers and musicians will be mostly different in 2017.
Certainly, the revival's theme, "Blessed are the Peacemakers," is different. The theme is taken from the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:9 in particular: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
"We live in such a time of hate and anger that we, the body of Christ, need to be peacemakers in everything we do and say," Moede says.
So, who's on the list to speak during the event, which runs from 5 to 9 p.m., each night? It's largely a local slate of people involved in this non-denominational, come-and-go-as-you-please event.
"No matter where I do a revival, the Lord puts on my heart people to ask to participate in the revival," Moede says. "And we may have a couple more surprises as we go, we don't know yet. But, yes sir, it is local and I think that is just wonderful, because there are so many people in Windom who have so much on their heart that they'd like to share."
