Fifth Sunday of Easter

May 2, 2010

THE END OF THE STORY

Imagine yourself on a couch reading your favorite book.  You spend hours immersing yourself in the story, but then, with only a few chapters left, you put the book down and walk away.

Such an idea seems ludicrous, but it is the approach many of us take with The Bible.  How many of us have spent time reading and studying Revelations?  I imagine not many.

Today we hear how the story ends.  God promises no more tears, no more pain and no more mourning.

And for as much as we have accepted this, these words are actually quite challenging to our mentalities.  Often, we think the old will pass away, die, be left; but God promises indicate a renewal of what is.

What does this mean for us?  Well, you will just have to listen in to find out!
