Heaven

Time Magazine, April 16, 2012 - "Rethinking Heaven"

It is about resurrection – first Jesus’, then the great resurrection that is said to await all believers. The closing image of this mighty passage, though, is about not eternal bliss and peace but work, deeds, action: “Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,” wrote Paul “because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” In a vision of ultimate reward, a reminder of what is essential: the work that is always at hand.
