Turning the World Upside Down – Zoom Church
What does the Thessalonian community have to do with popular broadways musical Hamilton? Like the musical’s tribute to the battle of Yorktown, Paul’s arrival in Thessalonica shook up the established Jewish community and turned their world upside down. Unlike the American revolutionaries, Paul calls the new believers to a revolution of non-violent love and justice. Knowing all about what it feels like to have our worlds turned around, how do with consider what we want to keep upside down as Jesus calls us to be members of his upside down realm.
