The great theologian Johnny Cash once wrote: “You’re so heavenly minded you’re no earthly good.” Only Jesus said it better.
In this episode we look at the temptation to be so focused on the hereafter that we miss the presence of the kingdom of God in the here and now (and our call to embody it!).
It’s no minor risk – a point Jesus drives home with references to such disasters as the great flood in the days of Noah, or the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah! (Surely there’s a gospel song in there somewhere…)
The text for this episode is Luke 17:20-37 (NRSV).
