Jesus went to heaven, and the disciples would have liked to have stayed there.
Looking at the heavens.
Just like the transfiguration.
Let’s move in, we are ready for heaven.
Or at least we can spend all the time with the pure ones, the disciples, the ones in the know.
And Jesus said, don’t worry I’m going to send you to the ends of the earth, don’t worry I’m going to give you a million Easters, 2,000 years to learn; 2,000 years of grace.
Talk about a grace period for one’s debts.
Many weeks and Sunday for Easter to unfold into your hearts, and your children’s hearts and your children’s children’s children’s house.
I’m going to give you time to learn how to be community.
I’m going to leave you with my one commandment, love one another.
Stop looking at heaven, the answer isn’ there.
Look to earth, to the relationships.
