I think I included a typo in one of the recent posts. The Romans passage is one with which you are familiar:

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the Love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You may exegete as you like. I'm preparing a workshop of leading worship for tomorrow, very excited.

I never noticed that this quote is exactly in sync with the "Kingdom" philosophy so flogged to death by the Jesus Movement. Consider: 1.)Neither heavenly nor earthly powers can separate the transcendental self from its union with the universal consciousness; 2.) The "kingdom" is neither represented by "things" present nor "things" to come; 3.) The "kingdom" is not measured by height or depth--How Taoist!

So, it seems awfully close to the Zen concept of apprehension of the eternal present through transcendental meditation.

Just a thought.

Well, dude. That's deep. Thanks.
