VOICE REVIVAL in Oklahoma by Carla Hinton
VIDEO: Community encouraged to attend workshop, revival
Two clergy leaders visited The Oklahoman Thursday morning to talk about a revival and workshop planned in Oklahoma City, beginning tonight, Thursday, Aug. 6.
The Rev. Lee Cooper Jr, senior pastor of Prospect Baptist Church, brought the Rev. Douglas Miles, bishop of Kiononia Baptist Church in Baltimore, to the OPUBCO Video Studio to discuss the Voices Organized in Civic Engagement (VOICE) Revival that begins at 7 tonight at Cooper's Prospect Church, 2809 N Missouri. The revival continues at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Miles, who also is co-chairman emeritus of Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD), will be keynote speaker for the three-day revival and he also will leave a workshop for clergy leaders set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Prospect.
Another workshop for leaders and others in the community will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the church.
Miles is one of the spiritual leaders in Baltimore who has been a leading voice for change in that city which has been struggling in the aftermath of the April death of Freddie Gray, a black man, while in police custody.
Cooper and Miles discussed the goal of the Oklahoma City revival and workshops in an interview with me in The Oklahoman's video studio.
