The Third Sunday After Pentecost

This Week’s Inspiration:
Hannah Bowman, from a sermon on “The Last Four Things”:

 

“If heaven is understood only as blessedness and peace — only as the absence of bad things and the presence of trivial joys — then we cannot both take justice seriously and also avoid the exclusion of enemies, oppressors, and abusers from heaven. How can we allow those who have done harm on earth and avoided consequences to reap the rewards of heaven too? But what if heaven is not primarily a place of peace, but instead a community, created by communal participation in the divine life? Such a conception of heaven allows us to begin to imagine it as a place of communal accountability — a place where all can be welcome only because all are responsible to one another: a place of justice.”
