Having just celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, we turn in today’s epistle to our own resurrectional destiny. I believed once that heaven consisted in my own “brutal” singing before God’s throne. Now, thank God, the author of Revelation writes that multitudes from every community will rejoice, while dressed in the white of peace. No more discrimination of race, gender, age, nor power! The love of the land has transformed those present. The author exclaims in coded language: God is love, and the more we love, the more we deeply share in God’s  “promised land” of love. Our hearts seek love, and love we find at the throne of love. And, there will be no more pain nor tears, for we will be totally in love.
