Heaven is God’s realm of existence. Earth is ours. Overlap is what we seek. When overlap occurs, peace, love and joy rule. There was a place where overlap was total. Human rebellion rejected it, but human rebellion did not overtake it- it still occurs. There is coming a time when overlap will again be total- that is our goal. Isaiah, Peter, Paul & John speak of the day that a new heaven and a new earth will come and God’s dwelling will be with men. That day, ruled by peace, love and joy is coming. It was inaugurated by Jesus and it will be fulfilled by Jesus. It is a day we are so boldly called to hope for that we risk to live it now.
