Retired Chief Justice Puno to keynote United Methodist Church Nov. 30 gathering

MANILA, Philippines – Retired Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno will deliver the keynote address to thousands of United Methodist Church (UMC) members during its Grand Revival Worship Celebration to be held at the Philsports Arena (Ultra) in Pasig City on Nov. 30, 2012.

Revive UMC, a movement that calls for healing and unity within the church and the society, organized the event as “a call to stand fast and pray for the Holy Spirit’s work in the hearts of United Methodists and other Christians in the country.”

Rev. Gilbert Cedillo, a member of the Revive UMC core group, said notable international speakers will also speak before the expected 8,000 person who will participate in the revival event.

Cedillo said the Rev. Scott Kelso, former president of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries and author of Ice on Fire:  A New Day for the 21st Century Church, will lead the “praying for healing and unity” session, while Singapore-based Rev. Malcolm TH Tan will talk about “scriptural holiness.”

Christian singer-songwriter Arnel de Pano will lead a 500-voice choir that will provide the music for the event.

The Quezon City Philippines Annual Conference East (QCPACE) hosted the first Revive gathering last March 24.

Since then, four other annual conferences followed suit, namely: the Bataan District of West Middle Philippines Annual Conference, the Middle Philippines Annual Conference, Pampango Philippines Annual Conference, and Tarlac Philippines Annual Conference.

At least 6,000 UMC members have participated in the events.
