There’s a paradoxical quality to living as Christians. We are called to live in this world for a time, fully engaging its joys and sorrows, seeking and serving Christ in all persons, striving for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being–as if this is the only world that really matters. And we are called to live in anticipation of the life to come, as if it, too, is the only world that really matters.
