“. . . on earth as it is in heaven.”

Happy Earth Day!

Here are three links about that:

And here is some more breaking news:

Although our eyes may tend toward the up and up, here we are.

Let’s work together and turn some things upside down like he told us once:

Dear Earthlings, 

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are those who have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake

Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

With love,

Ιησούς Χριστός

Okay, now we have a kingdom to help build (and a garden too, I hope), on earth as it is in heaven . . .
