I love this comment!
From the article.
Its about whether believing Christians see earthly life as inextricably bound up with eternal life or as simply prelude to a heavenly existence elsewhere.
If, like me, you find the former option intriguing, then heaven is the reality one creates in the service of the poor, the sick, the enslaved, the oppressed. It is not Disneyland in the sky but acts of selflessness and love that bring Gods sacred space and grace to a broken world suffused with tragedy. We could do worse than think in such terms.
This are two interesting summaries referencing the subject. Neither source is TEC so I can't be accused of favoritism. LOL
