St. John AME Church announced Friday that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago will not be preaching its spring revival as planned.
“Due to the current environment and a grueling travel schedule over the past weeks, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.'s public schedule is under review and has been placed on hold until further notice. Rev. Jeremiah Wright has made the decision to spend personal time with himself and his family," the church said in a statement.
The revival services will proceed as scheduled beginning at 6 p.m. Sunday with a service of celebration for the ministry of Wright. The preacher Sunday will be the Rev. Kenneth Marcus of Turner Cathedral in Marietta.
The services continue at 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
