‘See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.’
Christian Aid Week, this year, is focussing on
ending Poverty. The lectionary text, with its
vision of a whole new world reminds us
of the hope we have, in God, that there
can be love and justice and compassion.
And it can begin in us.
