Revelation 5:9-10 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, (10) and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”
The broken bits of human communities are ultimately to be gathered to form a redeemed work of art. The story is too vast to be told thoroughly, and so it is told in imagery. At various times in life the imagery affects me, effectively launching me into a greater vision. At other times, the signs are flat and the fonts pedantic and it all sounds like sloganeering. The challenge in times like that is stop fixating and to allow the peripheral vision of the mind to participate once again. We see through tinted glass, but there certainly is something to see.
