Back to the Future

Posted on June 28th, by Vicky in Revelation 21:6-21. No Comments

My husband was a fan of of the series Fringe, a sci fi television series that centered on characters on either side of a parallel universe. Things always got intriguing when characters (or beings of some sort) passed from one side to the other. It’s likely the producers of the show didn’t intend for someone like me to draw spiritual comparisons between fictional parallel worlds and the reality of the spiritual realm and our physical world, but thank you N.T. Wright for the reminder that “there are signs that this reality [our future world] keeps peeping through even in the present world of death and tears.” Understanding that I am in the midst of eternity now and that what I do and how I choose to spend my days matters, both now and on the “other side,.” gives life significance, perspective, focus, purpose, anticipation and hope.
