Everything Can End… – The Rev. Morgan Allen – St. Paul’s Within the Walls

Text & audio available

 

“…While Jesus’ one-liner ‘Wisdom, indeed, is vindicated by her deeds,’ offers encouragement, the aphorism also reminds us that vindication could take a while, and, in the meantime, everything can end: save for the Kingdom of God, there is no empire without vulnerability…This mode and momentum of the status quo’s maintenance does not, like an evergreen, express God’s eternal character, or, like a papal palace set atop a Roman ruin express God’s continuing revelation! Rather, this is exactly the sort of shadowy, seamless continuity discouraging our attentiveness, encouraging us to take for granted our way of life.”
