I've Got a Case of the Mondays

A close seminary friend used to tell me, quoting past church mystics and theologians to note the dreary and melodramatic reality of our world: "We live in an in-between time — between despair and hope — between the Resurrection of Jesus and the Return of Jesus - between the inauguration of the Kingdom of God and the final redemption of all things." In other words, we live in the promise of redemption, but not in the fulfillment of it.
