We need a Revolution, aka Reformation &


Revival

This week my heart was wishing that a revolution of Grace would begin
in our church. And then I got a post from a pastor friend, Alex Bryan, which
not just resonated with my feelings, but expressed my thoughts. So, here it
goes Tonight my soul cries out for a revolution. I cant absorb one more loss.
I cant take the look of one more set of formerly bright, young eyes, now dim,
to the possibility of what Church might be. I just cant take it anymore. Can
you? On that note, I cannot abide one more intellectually-stimulating yet
actionably-impotent confab shaped by Boomers and Xers reanalyzing why
the Church is too often failing to capture the imagination of emerging, young
generations, those in the church, and those without. I suspect, instead, we
better start listening, and really listening good, as painful as it might be, to
our offspring. Yes, to our own children, for Gods sake. But more so - but
even more so - to the Gospels Clear Voice. The quintessential quartet
sounds a compelling rhythm of human relevance: care for the poor,
hospitality toward the outsider, repair for the broken, inclusion of the
excluded, and the permanent end of all gated communities.
Studying the quarterly on Luke I thought of how revolutionary Jesus
message was in his time, and then thought about conversations I have had
over few weeks with people, who think that we need something more than
Jesus. That Jesus is not an answer. Again, pastor Bryans blog articulates
best: when people speak of Jesus, He is too often underestimated: Jesus
well theres got to be more. Really? More than giving all that you have to
the poor? More than turning the other cheek, going the extra mile, forgiving
70 x 7, and welcoming Romans to lunch? More than taking up a cross as
the defining description of your lifes substance and trajectory?
When you consider Gospel stories they call us to terrific and terrifying
honesty, integrity, bravery, sacrifice, confession, humility, compassion, and
love. That is the Revolution we need. Call it a Revival or a Reformation; it is
a return to Jesus and His ideals.
Alex Bryan ends with this appeal Jesus called human beings to form not
a religion, but a community. A community coined Church. This community
was designed to become a body unbound by the normal rules of clubs and
cults, an assembly tasked with becoming the single greatest freedom
movement in human history. This is what I believe, or at least what I really
want to believe to the marrow: The Church, above all available alternatives,
ought to capture the imagination of each new generation afresh. If the
"Church" isn't doing this, we, I, am flat out missing it. Tonight my soul cries
out for revolution. The Church of the present age is ours, and ours alone, to
shape. We enjoy the historical testimony of Apostles, Reformers, and
Prophets, but they cannot do the thinking and the dreaming and the acting
for us. This is our moment. This is our time. This is our opportunity. What are
we gonna do with it?

your servant, pastor Alex Golovenko
