Earth and heaven meet in human life

Morning: Psalm 18:1-20; Genesis 4:17-26; Hebrews 3:1-11

In 1998, Swissair flight 111 crashed off Nova Scotia.  The Peggy’s Cove multi-faith memorial says, of those who died: “They have been joined to the sea and the sky.”  The phrase reaches for a mysterious truth, perhaps that somehow, in human life, and death, earth and heaven meet.  Jesus says, “you will see greater things … angels ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.” Nathanael recognized Jesus’ human and divine qualities.  At first, he honestly expressed his doubt, but then called Jesus ‘Son of God’.  Mystery so often speaks the truth about what we know, but do not understand.
