Advent Day Four | STFU
Advent Day Four | STFU | Matthew 24:31
"And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."
I'll STFU and let James Cone speak.
“And yet the Christian gospel is more than a transcendent reality, more than “going to heaven when I die, to shout salvation as I fly.” It is also an immanent reality—a powerful liberating presence among the poor right now in their midst, “building them up where they are torn down and propping them up on every leaning side.” The gospel is found wherever poor people struggle for justice, fighting for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
The illustration was done by Norman Adams in the 1970s as part of a series for the Oxford University Press who commissioned Adams to illustrate scenes from the Old Testament.
