Our congregation has undertaken a risky thing during Eastertide- we are studying the Revelation to John. We are not studying it as a roadmap to the end of the world, nor as a moralistic allegory, but instead consider it an historical call for churches to stay loyal to Christ in the midst of Empire. We gather each week to unpack the symbols and the violence in the text, to reveal the way of our Loving God, hidden in plain sight.
