Since 2013, Jeremy Heuslein has been the Outreach Worker from Holy Trinity Brussels to the EU Institutions, providing pastoral care and spiritual accompaniment to young professionals.
In connection with his ministry, Jeremy has written this guest blog series for ICS. Exploring Brexit from a Christian viewpoint.
'What do you do?' is one of the three standard questions asked in the city that I call home: Brussels, Belgium. Last time I focused more on the question 'Where are you from?' here a second question confronts us: 'What do you do?' As Christians, we are in the world but we are called not to be of the world. That is, we are called to be the light and the salt, the witnesses and ambassadors of the Kingdom of God and not to define ourselves by worldly activities.
This particular blog post is about waiting for Brexit, which at some moments resembles a similarly titled play by Samuel Beckett. But it also about more than that, because there is something far more important than that at stake in our times of waiting: it is about the redemption of time.
