How Can There Be Any Sin in Sincere?

This week guest speaker Joshua Murray gives a talk that started out as three unrelated ideas that he couldn’t shake from his mind: 1.) The importance of sincerity. 2.) The value and intimacy of small groups rather than large gatherings. And 3.) A drive to figure out why learning more about Buddhism has been at the forefront of his mind – Is there any connection between these three ideas? Is there value in a slow burn rather than instant gratification? And what was Jesus up to in those missing years of his life? Did he wander around like in the TV show Kung Fu and walk the Earth collecting wisdom? Is that too far fetched of an idea? And why does Paul seem to understand aspects of Jesus’ teaching more than the people that were actually physically with him? Also, did Josh really find a spiritual connection to the movie Hellraiser? Well, I suppose it is the week before Halloween, so why not?

This talk was given on Oct 24, 2021 in Long Island, New York.

The Apostle's Pet Sounds

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,
