Everything Sad Untrue: Darkness and Light - 02
From Series: "Everything Sad Untrue - Shawnee Campus"
We all know something is wrong. Politicians promise if you vote for them things can be right again. Religions promise if you obey their teachings things can be right again. Businesses promise if you buy their product you can feel right again. We know it is not true, but we keep hoping...Maybe this time. But what if everything wrong can be made right? What if all the empty promises we believe are pointing to one, true promise? What if our broken world can be fixed? What if everything sad will one day come untrue? The book of Revelation claims precisely this, but in a strange, confusing, hope-filled way. This book gave the earliest Christians power to navigate a broken, sad world with courageous, unshakable joy. What did they know that we don’t? They knew Revelation, and so should we. Join us as we read what they read, we pray what they prayed—so that our church community might live as they lived.
