Behold Theme

Council Theme – Introduction and Bible Study

Behold! God is at work. He has already overcome death, and we believe in his saving grace. We see a new horizon, whether this resembles a welcome small change in our lives worthy of praise or a grand movement proclaiming God’s kingdom here on Earth. God is making all things new, each and every day.

In the book of Revelation, chapter 21, the writer sees “a new heaven and a new earth,” and from the one who is seated on the throne, he hears, “Behold, I make all things new” (21:5 RSV). From this verse comes our diocesan theme for 2017.
