The City, the Temple, the River, the Tree

Updated: Jun 3, 2022

Message for worship at West Richmond Friends Meeting, 22nd of Fifth Month, 2022

Speaker: Brian Young

Scripture: Revelation 21:10, 21:22-22:5 & Psalm 46

Good morning, Friends!

Revelation 21:10, NRSVUE: And in the spirit he carried me away to a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.

21:22–22:5: I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. Its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. People will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. But nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
