I hope you are all doing amazingly well! Our theme the last several weeks regarding the Jesus Revolution and then followed up by the Easter Revolution is the incredible change Jesus has brought to the world through his teaching, death, resurrection, & the commissioning his church/kingdom people to continue on and advance this New Creation that He has initiated. We often think of a "revolution" as some huge event but one of the beautiful things about the kingdom and what Jesus is actually calling us to, is to engage the smallest of situations, opportunities, and circumstances in revolutionary ways. The world's trajectory is always towards fear, division, self interest, accusation, etc., but as we follow Jesus may we be revolutionaries who choose love, inclusion, hospitality, grace, hope, generosity, peace, etc. at every turn!
I pray that we, the faith community of the St. Pete Vineyard would be found faithful to this Revolution of love even in the smallest and seemingly most insignificant of ways.
Much love to all of you revolutionaries and dreamers out there!
