Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.



Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
—Eric Clapton (1945- )

For the Christian, heaven is where Jesus is. We do not need to speculate on what heaven will be like. It is enough to know that we will be for ever with Him.—William Barclay (1907-1978)

I had a million questions to ask God: but when I met Him, they all fled my mind; and it didn't seem to matter.
—Christopher Morley (1890-1957)

The main object of religion is not to get a man into heaven, but to get heaven into him.—Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.—Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Who seeks for Heaven alone to save his soul
May keep the path, but will not reach the goal;
While he who walks in love may wander far,
Yet God will bring him where the blessed are.
- Henry Jackson van Dyke (1822-1891)

Our walls of division do not rise all the way to heaven.
—Philaret of Moscow (1782-1867)

If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don't want to go there.—Martin Luther (1483-1546)

All the way to Heaven is Heaven.
—Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.
(Matthew 6:19-21)
