Revelations 21:1-6

God’s Promise – a World of Hope

God’s Promise – a World of Hope

Destruction is not God’s intention: re-creation is! 

I for one am searching for a word of hope, and I think scripture provides just that. I think these verses reaffirm God’s deep and wide love for the world, God’s desire to refresh us and renew us, God’s vision for community where tears are dried and death will be no more. Someday…. Somewhere… 

Let these words of the Revelation do this for you as well… let them reawaken something deep inside you. Let yourself remember your own longing, and feel it, deeply. 

Let God’s word draw you toward something wonderful, and beautiful. A vision of what can be.  

Hope from Saints

Hope from Saints

"We do this by remembering the saints of our life. We turn to their stories, and lift up the memories of all of the saints we’ve known in our lives, and even those we haven’t known who have gone before us. 

We meet them here at this table and here they are restored to full life, just as we are.

We remember how they lived, 
how they found hope, 
how they shared grace with others, 
and how they passed it on to us.

And somewhere along the way, in these memories or at this table… we find hope that God’s kingdom is not some far off hope, but something that is coming closer to us every day."
