Quotes by Paula Gooder  (?)

“but my own view is that if heaven is to be considered to be a realm which is in any way ‘real’, then it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that it is populated with heavenly beings.”
Paula Gooder, Heaven

“On waiting Advent, then, calls us into a state of active waiting: a state that recognizes and embraces the glimmers of God’s presence in the world, that recalls and celebrates God’s historic yet ever-present actions and that speaks the truth about the almost-but-not-quite nature of our Christian living, which yearns for but cannot quite achieve divine perfection. Most of all, Advent summons us to the present moment, to a still yet active, a tranquil yet steadfast commitment to the life we live now. It is this to which Advent beckons us, and without it our Christian journey is impoverished.”
Paula Gooder, The Meaning is in the Waiting: The Spirit of Advent
