Paradise – Christine Valters Paintner

September 19, 2020

“In the Christian tradition, we encounter a vision of paradise as a place of wholeness in the Garden of Eden, the peaceable kingdom of Isaiah, and the heavenly city of the Book of Revelation. The reality we encounter in our daily lives feels much different. The news is rife with evidence that we live anyplace but paradise. We are confronted with growing degradation and fragmentation at every turn. And yet, this vision of a place of wholeness can help us inhabit an imaginative space that leads us to work toward the renewal of this world, rather than withdrawing in despair.”

 Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics

How might you practice paradise and discover the generosity of life here and now?
