Greetings from Revolution Church NYC!

It’s a rainy day here in the Brooklyn. Nothing new. It’s been a cold and rainy April.  I’m looking out my window to the dark and dreary skies. Right outside my front door is a newly planted tree, struggling to live through it’s first tumultuous spring. You can see only the tips of the buds, pushing through, yearning to reveal their splendor to our little neighborhood.

To me, this tree represents the Easter moment that we find ourselves in. I love Easter. Always have. And we did Easter up here at Revolution. We had a choir, and Easter lilies. We partook of the sacrament, opened to all. It was such a joyous celebration of life.

Then came Monday. As I mentioned in last weeks sermon, Monday brings the Easter hangover. In Easter Sunday lies the promise that life wins, and life abundantly. Come Monday we realize that though the promise is real, the struggle continues.

Just like that tree on my street, we the children of God, struggle to reveal our essence. We struggle to announce our unique beauty to the world. We push and grow attempting to fulfill God’s purpose in us. Along the way, we doubt if it will ever happen. Will the Kingdom come?

To me, this struggle is the Kingdom of God.

I have seen it first hand here in Brooklyn and with the online congregation. We are a community that shares our struggles to one another, and in that sharing, God is truly present.

Thank you for sharing your struggle with us. Your stories inspire us. We hope that ours inspire you.

Yours in the Easter moment,

Vince Anderson

Assistant Pastor, Revolution Church NYC
