There are no alternate plans as far as the love of God is concerned. He will continue loving, no matter what response is given Him.
Today I went to the Eucharist in Lichfield, a magnificent cathedral that has been proclaiming the Christian message for over 1300 years.
The Eucharist took place at the High Altar and was attended by a group of people. The theme in the address was about the totality of God’s love, that we cannot do anything to make Him love us more, or do anything that would make Him love us less : “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.
The cathedral relies on donations but makes it a policy not to charge anyone for admission. People came through the door, men, women and children from all walks of life: believers, atheists, agnostics and they were all walking around, their eyes in awe of such a beautiful place of worship. There was nowhere that was out of bounds, no signs or railings. People could wander freely throughout the cathedral, light a candle, say a prayer, or just sit for as long as they like. This, I thought, is just what the House of God should be. A welcoming place, with doors open wide, so people can come in freely. Such is the grace and love of God, who invites all to come to Him, just as they are.
There is a very warm welcome for anyone who wants to be there. “Whosever will may come”.
