I’ve been singing Yorktown from the musical Hamilton ever since sheltering in place started. There is a specific line when they talk about the end of the American Revolution when “the world turned upside down.” Revolutions do that. It doesn’t matter if they are political, spiritual, or emotional and now.. biological/cultural.
The incarnation is one of biggest moments when I feel like the world turned upside down. God put skin on and moved into the neighborhood. Powerful. And it inspires us to rethink what is happening now in terms of what that means in building the Kingdom of God. I’ve been sharing the videos that my clergy group “Parts Unknown” put together to inspire others. Today, my video is being shared:
The unknown is always a little bit scary and a little bit exciting. I do not believe that God caused this to happen. But I do believe that God will use this for good. Romans 8:28 says: “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” God is calling us to do something more innovative than we’ve ever done. Are you ready for what’s next? Do you trust enough to follow Him no matter what that may be?
If you’re ready, let me know. And we will create Holy Mischief like the world has never seen before.
Until Everyone Hears,
