Above my desk hangs a cross-stitched banner made by a refugee from Syria: “The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces.”
The banner captures why I do what I do, trotting the globe figuratively and literally. The sorrows of the world are real, multidimensional, and heartbreaking. Eternity—what Merriam-Webster calls “endless time”—also is real, where the old order of things passes away and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.
