Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church by Emily Dickinson

Contemplating Emily Dickinson's words on Sabbath, I find a connection to the final two phrases.

So instead of getting to Heaven, at last --
I'm going, all along.

This connects with my vision of my relationship with the Divine. That it is a journey while we are here and living, not a relationship for a distant time "in heaven." For me, when scripture says, "The Kingdom of God is within you," I am profoundly moved. Heaven is here and where heaven is, there is Sabbath. There is home.
