Revival is not Renewal

Revival = sovereign work of the Holy Spirit in individuals & groups, to "make strong, healthy or active again", or "return to life" (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

Renewal = Spirit-led change in church structure, values and priorities to facilitate spiritual growth and mission
Looking forward to exploring this distinction!
