Could London be in heaven?

There’s a phrase I’ve come across among Quakers about living the kingdom of heaven on earth. It’s about making the kingdom, the just world, happen here and now, not at some unknown future time after our death. I’m often reminded of this world at Whitechapel station in London of all places! Because it is here that the overground trains pass underneath the underground trains. Just like living a world turned upside down. I see this scene most often when I’m returning home from my work at Quaker Social Action, an organisation that talks about working for a just world in its vision statement, so the timing seems apt.
