“…death does not win.”


Local church closure is not a death blow to God’s networked kingdom. Perfect balance is a death blow to living systems. Fish can’t live in a stagnant pond. Periodic oscillations help living systems to thrive. Sometimes a forest fire is just what the forest needs…But ecosystems reflect something we know about God through Scripture: death does not win.
