Discussion and debate around climate change turns on the effects these changes have on human beings and the environment itself. It is allergy season and regardless of the big changes, pollen changes everthing. We will look for allergy medicine for those watery eyes, itchy throats and runny noses. If you are like me, you may be looking for a good freeze knowing it is many months away. One solution would be to be “taken” out of the world – no longer to affected by its environs. But, alas that is not possible. So you determine how to live safely in the world knowing your limitations.
Jesus prayed not for our snappy exit from the world but that we would continue his mission in the world. The tone, tenor and shape of the world would be different with the incarnation. It should continue to be different with the ongoing incarnating work of the Spirit in the life of Jesus’ followers.
