But, in accordance with his promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home. 2Peter 3:13
That was the reading from this morning's office and it has just been with me all day....a place where righteousness is at home. What, I keep thinking, would that be like? A place where people don't get summarily kicked off my therapy schedule because they have the wrong insurance maybe? Or a place where a minister doesn't tell lies in order to infiltrate a GLBT group so he can terrorize them in order to hurl his version of the truth at them? Or a place where people could go Christmas shopping without worrying about disgruntled guys with assault rifles? A world where those in positions of trust might actually be trust-worthy?
Waiting, we are waiting, Lord. It is dark, and we need your light. Come,Lord Jesus, come.
