Clatter of rails…

Thanks to today’s minimergent;

This side of Paradise, people are with God in such a remote and spotty way that their experience of Eternal Life is at best like the experience you get of approaching a place at night in a fast train. Even the saints see only an occasional light go whipping by, hear only a sound or two over the clatter of the rails.
