Instead, the heavenly worship which takes up much of Revelation pointed them to their true allegiance: [Jesus Christ]. Having made this point clearly and repeatedly, just as Revelation did to its first readers, [Nelson Kraybill] writes, "Because many Christians in North America live at relative ease in the heart of empire, it may be difficult for us to identify with the countercultural nature of worship in Revelation. We are tempted to the diversion of using Revelation as a horoscope for predicting the future, rather than as a handbook for radical Christian living in the present. Believers in the two-thirds world who deal daily with poverty or violence, however, may help us grasp the function of worship among suffering people."On June 13, Conrad Grebel University College, Waterloo, Ont., hosted a reception to thank the family of the late artist Peter Goetzfor a donation of 16 of his paintings to add to Grebel's collection of Goetz works. Pictured from left to right: Grebel president Henry Paetkau thanks Goetz's children, jean Hoover and Peter Goetz jr., for the donation. In his remarks, Paetkau quoted Goetz, who died in 2007, "'What is bleak to some people is beautiful and paintable to me.'"
