Was just thinking about William Booth's vision of boundless salvation today as part of a team of folks breaking down the social inclusion framework and how it applies to The Salvation Army... without commenting too much about the particulars I would say this: William caught what Jesus embodied... the good news of the Kingdom is that it's FREE and for EVERYONE... everyone is included in the opportunity to experience the love of God... it's infectious and permeating - it's amazing, free, true and happening right now. This boundless salvation is able to/in process of redeeming the whole world... do we see it? can we taste it? can we envision what that means for our lives, families, communities and the whole world...? is it possible that it's true enough in the here and now... can we yearn for God's kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
