In some circles it’s just a tent meeting that you plan in advance and invite a special speaker. In other circles, it represents a pining for the great historical revivals to happen again. Still in other circles, it’s a sort of undefinable grassroots momentum.
At its core, the word revival means to bring to life again. It comes from the Latin viva which means “to live.” With the prefix re- we could say it literally means “to live again.”
We want to know, when was the original vival? Is it possible to live from that place of revival all the time?
