I don't think anyone has touched the essential expressed by Josef Goldbrunner, many years ago, and one that guided much of our (seminary years) understanding about real holiness.  Simply stated, Holiness is Wholeness.  (The title of his book). 


 


For believers who believe in God/Yahweh/Allah the Creator, what is so in tune with that creation.


For believers who believe in the Salvation of Jesus, what is more true of him than  that message.


For those who believe in Buddhism,  enough said.

I agree.  I was probably nibbling around the corners of that with my post.

Holiness is expressing the will of God in one's life. 


As Saint Paul said somewhere it is not I who live but Christ lives in me.


There is a hole in my heart dug deep by advertising and envy and a desire to see a thing that is new and different and beautiful. A place within me that is empty, and that I want to fill up. The hole makes me think electronics can help. And of course, they can.

They make the world easier and more enjoyable. They boost productivity and provide entertainment and information and sometimes even status. At least for a while. At least until they are obsolete. At least until they are garbage.

Saul Steinberg--not just a cartoonist, but a great illustrator and fine artist. May he rest in peace.
