In the End, God makes all things right.
In the End, God conquers death and life reigns.
In the End, God overcomes sin and freedom persists.
In the End, God dwells forever with humanity.

Where did that great business come from?
Where did our superheroes come from?

It brings us to the end, an end which is a gloriously new beginning.
In the Beginning, God made a Garden.
In the End, God makes a City.
