Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The historical reading of the destruction of Jesusalem in a.d. 70 is an important reminder to the people of Christ that his words always come to pass. In addition, this event is a harbinger of things to come. As Jerusalem miserably fell while Jesus' flock fled to the mountains, so must we learn to flee today, to the greater hills, especially of Mount Calvary; that is, the holy Gospel is our new home, as the birds gather around the dead bodies. For as the faithless multitudes in Jerusalem brought the armies of Caesar, so the faithless in our day hasten the Day of the Lord. And meanwhile we also, like eagles, flee to the Body of Christ. Sermon for the Third-last Sunday of the Church-year. Also, a video of the entire service here.
