Newsletter for March 30th, 2009.

Greetings from Brooklyn!

Although I have been working with Jay and Revolution NYC for close to a year now, we just realized I still haven’t introduced myself to many of you. I am a long-time online listener who relocated to Brooklyn last spring and took over many of Marc Brown’s duties for the church. If you have contacted us through Myspace, Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, you have probably already met me. But since we have so much going on right now, I’d like to save more about me for later and get right to the good stuff.

We’re well into the swing of things with our “Green Bible” study, meeting every second and fourth Thursday here in Brooklyn. These are open-ended, meaning you can jump in and out as your schedule allows without having to worry about missing days you can’t attend. If you’d like more information on this please visit our staff blog for more details. You can do that by clicking here.

We are very excited to be working with a great group called Books Behind Bars, who deliver reading material to prisoners all across the country. If you attend Revolution here in New York, you can click here for a list of the types of books they need, and if you are an online listener and would like to help out with this great cause you can do that here.

Also for those of you here in New York City, we are very excited to bring you our next installation of our film series with “Shakespeare Behind Bars”. Seeing a trend here? This documentary film chronicles the story of prisoners who take on roles from the works of Shakespeare, which in turn helps them to confront their personal demons. This will be shown on Monday, April 13th at WOW Cafe here in Brooklyn. You can get all the details at our Facebook Fan page.

Finally, we once again ask humbly for your donations to help keep our church going. Much of the work that goes into Revolution comes from unpaid volunteers like myself in an effort to use any money we do have as efficiently as possible. We are on a show-string budget so every little bit helps. If you prefer, you can even sign up for automatic giving in any increment you’d like. Even if it’s only a few dollars a month, it would make a big difference. We get so many heartbreaking letters from people who we have touched, and it’s an unfortunate fact of life that we need funding to continue to do this. So please, if you haven’t yet or have been considering it, go here to donate now.

As always, we want to hear from you and get your feedback and ideas. We really take them to heart because we want to serve you and our community as best as we possibly can. I can’t wait to meet more of you so don’t be shy! You can email me directly at paolo@revolutionnyc.com if you ever need to get a hold of me. God Bless and we’ll see you soon!

A nice little write-up in Newsweek about different labels that people of the Christian faith like to slap on one another.  This has been a topic of some of Jay’s recent sermons, so it’s kinda fun to see some of these thoughts in print in this major news publication.  Link to the full article right here.
