I Have A Dream MLK and Abba on Spotify

Salvation would be sappy if it did not involve suffering and deathFor salvation is light at the end of the tunnelThe glass half fullWhat cynics excoriate as KumbayaA world where the high of action is modified by the reality of ontological valuesToleranceDemocracyHelpfulness Non-idolatryMandating action as nonviolent attainment of these realities
Those who besmirch these values besmirch  lifeFor these are etched on every soulAnd live even if crucified in every conscienceAnd only by willing and living these values are we made whole

But if eternity’s already past

Abba's Way: 67 Some argue that the past contains the now
But if eternity’s already past Or if eternity is still to come, Must not all things have already been done? Must not this moment be done, or to come? Our answer must come from our point of view. And I can only give you mine: It is: Time is not circular, does not repeat. Eternity is not chronology.
