REVOICE: TAKING THE CHURCH WHEREVER “HERE” LEADS
At one point in her keynote, Eve Tushnet commented that the Revoice community is “united largely by its sacrifices.” Reading between the lines, I heard a quiet, deft refutation of one of the criticisms of Revoice — that we shouldn’t let something “broken” about us mark and define our community.
Eve pointed out that we are choosing not to be united by some fallen aspect of our hearts but by how we choose to respond to that fallenness.
I appreciated Eve’s point because, really, that’s the camaraderie I felt at Revoice: the fact that everyone there could relate to what I’ve given up to follow Jesus was far more important and exciting than anyone there being able to relate to my particular brand of sins or temptations. I think uniting over that facet is helpful.
