The ugliness of violence and terror can never endure.
Peace and beauty always win out in the end.
As Christians, we look forward to the reign of the Prince of Peace. Until then, we pray for peace in our world and justice for all. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the millions of members of a faith who are not represented by its terrorist fringe.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Rev 21: 3-5
