There never was a less-UCC vision of Jesus than this one.
Jesus, no fewer than six times in the gospels, utters his now-famous dictum, "He who has ears, let him hear."
The bold, ancient Revelation to John repeats the even more ancient vision of Ezekiel.
This verse, one of the very last in the Bible, makes me think of two bumper stickers: "Jesus is Coming. Look Busy!" and my favorite: "God is coming …and she's pissed!"
Dag Hammarskjold wrote this affirmation in January, 1953, a few months after becoming the second Secretary-General for the 8-year-old United Nations.
