Heaven

DeathtoStock9

We will consider these two definitions of heaven in our worship over the coming weeks:
(1) heaven [is] exclusively…the place one goes to when one dies… and
(2) heaven is the origin of a reality that is coming towards us at present.

Your life is an open doorway
where God enters the world.

What you say and do,
what you notice,
what you hold and set down,
each is a portal.

The passage is best left open,
not filled.

Fully formed opinions
are of no use,
nor are collections
of little buttons,
things you’ve done right,

only the space
to let God by and maybe a little
of the breeze

of heaven.
