Cosmic Community in Christ

Today I'm pondering estrangement, loneliness and isolation alongside the Apostle Paul's idea about Christ's mission "to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth." Eph..1:10 NRSV.

I am wondering about the shift from alienation, offence and estrangement to an experience of deep relationality and healing connectedness to one another; from nihilistic reductionism to whole-making relationality; from soul-whithering narcissism to a dynamic experience of kenotic love in [Cosmic] community.  This speaks to me of the Body of Christ taking form.  If gathering up all things in Him is the trajectory of the cosmos then in what ways can we participate in this mission?

One significant way might be that we wake up to the intimate relationship we have with one another and all of creation.
