Heaven grows around you

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.

                   Those who love me will keep my word,          and my Mother-and-Father will love them,          and we will come to them          and make our home with them.                   — John 14.23

Heaven is not a distant country. It comes to you. It grows around you. It is your home, your your most inward, intimate place, your deepest belonging.

To love your neighbor is to welcome them into the home of your heart where God is.

You let the love well up in you and it returns enlarged, and you find yourself embraced, en-webbed, familied.

No matter what day comes, what despair or undeserving, you are still among the Beloved ones who gladly live with you.

Even in drought the well is surrounded by flowers and the greenest of grass.                    

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
