Revolution Church


"Exclamation Point, Exclamation Point, Question Mark"

Jay gives a raw and heartfelt talk, truly emphasizing just how literal Revolution is when they say “Come as you are!” – no false airs, just truth and honesty. Jay has been going through a tough time and he shares that with us, he explains how depression and trauma go hand in hand. He shares how pain is a part of life, so we need to live life on life’s terms, and just how important it is to recognize the humanity in each other. He shares the struggle of trying to love the impossible people and how sometimes it makes us feel broken. Plain and simple. Revolution is a group of broke people sharing our brokenness with each other. Coming as we are. Jay discusses mourning the living and the blessing and curse that it is. Also we hear that famous ‘love scripture’ from Corinthians like we’ve never heard it before.

This talk was given on November 14, 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,
