As children of God, we are life time learners, ever growing in our understanding of God, Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Continued education is paramount to continued growth.  We encourage healthy discussion and learning opportunities for all who come to Trinity.

Rise & Shine for Eastertide

During Eastertide, the second reading appointed to be read each week from Easter 2 to Easter 6 is from the Revelation to John. Why do we read this book? Isn’t this the book of the Bible that has been misused and abused by late night radio preachers – the book that served as the basis for Left Behind – the multi-media franchise that began with a series of sixteen bestselling religious novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins? Isn’t this the book that many use to offer speculative theories about the end-times? The answer to these questions is, “yes.” But there’s so much more. . . .

Kurt Willems, the pastor, writer, and planter of Pangea Church in Seattle, writes this about the Book of Revelation: “Revelation is less about doom-and-gloom and more about gardens that will bloom. It’s a book of hope – a costly hope – but hope nonetheless. It’s about following the Slaughtered Lamb while forsaking the values of Empire that compete for our imaginations.”

So, we’re going to look at sections from the book each Sunday starting on April 24. If you would like to read ahead, here are the passages from Revelation appointed for each of the Sundays:

April 24 – Revelation 1:4-8 (A message from Christ to the Churches)

May 1 – Revelation 5:11-14 ( A song to the Lamb)

May 8 – Revelation 7:9-17 (The vast throng before the Throne)

May 15 – Revelation 21:1-6 (The new heaven and earth)

May 22 – Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5 (A city of light and living water)

May 29 – Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21 (Closing warnings and promises)

You can access all the passages online at Bible Gateway offers more than fifty different English translations in a searchable format.

At the first session on April 24, we’ll provide some general background information about Revelation, so attendance is especially encouraged this particular Sunday. However, after that, each week’s conversation will stand on its own so participants can attend sessions as they are able. The Rise & Shine series for Eastertide will be led by the parish clergy – two Episcopalians who have read the Revelation to John and look forward to sharing it with you!
