Revolution Church


"Don't Kill Them With Kindness..."

Jay is back! He's returned from Belfast and is ready to talk grace and reformation. In this weeks talk Jay dives into Luther, Galatians and the Gospel of Luke to discuss and unpack what it means to deny ourselves and take up our cross. Are we taking up our cross or are we asking other people to take up our crosses for us? Jay discusses our institutions aren’t the only thing in need of reformation but how we need a reformation in our own mind. How do we love our enemies? How do we communicate with people that don’t love us? As Jay puts it: “Grace can’t be taught enough!”

This talk was given on Oct 31, 2021 in Seattle, Washington.

Achtung Baby!! Every year at this time Jay takes us on a deep dive into the Book of Galatians. An on-going series about Paul’s letter the Galatians, which might be more timely than ever. Written to a community that was dangerously divided, which is something hitting a bit too close to home these days. Division is everywhere, in religion, in politics, social media, friends, family, pandemics, vaccinations – you name it and we're divided on it these days. People often call the Bible timeless, but Jay teaches how he feels that this letter in particular is more timely than it is timeless. Paul’s letter to the Galatians is the glue at the center of Jay’s talks and at the center of Revolution Gathering itself. It inspired the Reformation and defines the concept of Grace better than any other writing. It teaches us that ‘compromise’ isn’t a bad word, and it helps us get to a place beyond our comfort zones and beyond ourselves. It teaches us that two things that don’t agree with each can often bring together a higher truth! It teaches Grace and the reality of accepting ourselves where we are at and accepting that we are accepted. Grace is willing to lay all the cards on the table and have the hard talks. Not everything in this letter is comfortable, and some concepts will lead to some pretty hard talks. But they are talks worth having, and that’s why Jay dedicates a whole study to it at the start of every year.This talk was given on January 9, 2022 in Seattle,
