Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

The other day we watched the annual parade in the city where we live, celebrating the ethnic diversity of its inhabitants. What a dazzling array of ethnic costumes and dance!  And the pride in the the cultures they represented!

Do you suppose that in heaven, when “people from every tribe and language and people and nation” are assembled, we’ll all forget our languages and national origins and cultures and just all blend into one another?  Or will each be given opportunities to praise God in our own language, dressed in our cultural finery and performing in our unique way?  What a program that would be!  What fun, and what glory!  I’m looking forward to it Smile.

    or maybe it will be a combination of the two – a blended symphony of praise, each culture uniquely contributing in their own tongue and way, but somehow simultaneously uniting with all other cultures in the most complete and perfect praise yet?? wow. so exciting to imagine the possibilities!!

  2. Revelation 7:9-12… I cant wait to be there….
    the only one thing that we do here on earth which will continue in heaven is this multi-ethnic worship of the Lord and of the Lamb that was slain. Amen!
