2 Peter 3:13 But, in accordance with his promise, we wait for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness is at home. * * * * * * * * More than ever, we have a problem with how we fit together. I don't like that. I know what it feels like not to fit in. I know all the trouble and expense I go through in order to make sure I have some moments in my life when I feel at home. I know how much it bothers me when I can't make a good fit happen for others. Perhaps the one thing we have in common - that none of us is completely at home - can be the starting place for our best hope to be together. Yes, we wait, for a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness is at home and we are too. * * * * * * * * Open wide your arms, Lord, so that we can all fit. Amen.
