Isaiah 61, Amos 5 and Tweets from a Mass Revival

The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me;
he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed,
to bind up the broken-hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and release to the prisoners.
Isaiah 61:1
Albuquerque was just the second stop in the Poor People's Campaign:  A National Moral Mass Revival Meeting.  Central United Methodist Church was packed to capacity. "There are people listening in the parking lot," said Rev. Dr. .William Barber, a renown Civil Rights leader and founder of Repairers of the Breach. This evening was not all about Rev. Barber's inspirational words. We learned about different ways that people in New Mexico are oppressed by the economic system, by the military-industrial complex, by the corporate sector.  And yet, the overflow crowd was hungry for Rev. Barber's words. They heard about Isaiah 10 and Amos 5

Here are some Twitter messages from a few of the folks in the pews.
