Bishop Tom Wright does an interesting interview with Time about heaven. Christians need to rethink theirlanguage when referring to loved ones who have passed on. To speak of heaven as our telos is to minimize the wonder of the resurrection and all its implications for our present lives. To speak of our dead as having “met Jesus,” and have that be the end of it, is to understate the glorious future kingdom of Jesus on earth, in our renewed bodies.
Corrie and I have decided that if we can’t be married in the resurrection, we’re at least going to shack up.
