billboard theology: a dictionary of everyday contemporary spirituality

God is everywhere. While sadly sometimes Christianity reduces God to Sunday and to buildings, God by very definition belongs in all of everyday life. In honour of this, I’m building a dictionary of everyday spirituality.

This is a billboard hanging on the pub closest to my work. God is named. Heaven is depicted. What is striking is that to understand this billboard you need to know the creation story. Fascinating for an allegedly secular country! While I am not convinced that alcohol represents the fullness of heaven, I love the suggestion that life to the full – in relaxation, in enjoyment – might be part of God’s creative work.

(This is another entry in dictionary of everyday spirituality. For the complete index of all entries, go here).
