The New Jerusalem

The evening readings for Independence Day are from Micah and Revelation. Micah describes the New Jerusalem as a place where “they shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid…” In Revelation, John says “the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them…” and as I imagine it God himself dreams–if such a thing is possible–that “I will be their God and they will be my children.”

What an unimaginably beautiful and reassuring image.
