A Letter to the Church in North America

This is a video blog from Kester Brewin.  I really enjoyed it.  I’m not sure if I’m more intrigued by the thought itself, or by lyrical power of the imagery used to convey the ideas. 

Brewin explains,

Last weekend saw a really innovative gathering in Toronto called ‘Eighth Letter.’ It asked the simple question: if the writer of revelation had written ‘A Letter to the Church in North America’ what would they have said? A number of people were asked to present their letters – some in person, some virtually.

Mine’s now on YouTube, and carries a simple message: if you want to find the Kingdom of Heaven, you’re going to have to abandon your pursuit of paradise. In other words, the purified utopian ideal is dangerous; God is found in the dirt of the incarnation.
