Jeremiah Wright Finally Fading into the Woodwork?

He’s canceling an upcoming appearance at an African Episcopal church in Philadelphia:

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), a mega church in Chicago, Illinois with approximately 10,000 members, has had to postpone serving as revivalist for the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Rev. Dr. Martini Shaw, rector of St. Thomas, said Wright’s office asked if they could reschedule his participation for sometime in the next few months.

“The reason being that he [Wright] is simply exhausted,” said Shaw. “He needs time to pray, reflect, refresh and refuel. So we are in conversation about a new date for revival.”
