All journeys must end someday

Peter Akinola’s recapitulation of the running battle in the Anglican Communion (A Most Agonizing Journey towards Lambeth 2008, also here) is as good of a summary as one could want.

One of the titles, however, is intriguing: "All journeys must end someday."  We’ve been conditioned to think that the journey itself is the central experience of life.  But the reality is that the objective is what’s most important.  When the journey is at an end, the goal (hopefully) is reached.

It’s obvious that the journey that Akinola speaks of is coming to an end.  But there is a more important one, and it’s the journey that’s behind all of the efforts.  It’s the journey into eternity.  This life’s journey will end someday.  What is your objective?
