Heaven (not a place where nothing ever happens, contra the Talking Heads)

The sermon made the mistake that the popular misconception of Christian ambitions makes. Thinking its about heaven (well, we got past that to recognise that its not 'getting into heaven, but getting heaven into us' that's God's plan, cute saying but wrong in detail).

The kingdom of God's consumation is the new heavens and new earth. The new creation. That's our ambition, and God's.
