It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

At Home with God, a Reflection on Revelation 21:1-6a

We gather on All Saints Day to remember the people in our lives who have died. We can find these words from Revelation to be comforting, reassuring. God is among them. God will dwell with them. They are God's people. What we have known as good about God will continue past this life.

But, there will be changes. In their home in the holy city no longer will there be tears, no more death, no more mourning or crying or pain. All things will be made new.

We see glimpses of this New Jerusalem in our lives now. God has declared, "It is done! I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end."
