Glass Beach

Ussuri Bay near Vladivostok was once used as a dumping ground for discarded bottles that had contained alcoholic beverages. Over time, the powerful waves of the North Pacific broke the bottles and wore the remnants down into millions of small, smooth, colorful “pebbles”. Today, this once-barren and polluted area has become a beloved tourist attraction known as Glass Beach. Visitors from around the world pay to see this beautiful spectacle.

This illustrates how God can take our broken lives and bring us together as something truly beautiful—the church of Christ!

“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband…It shone with the glory of God…The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone…”—Revelation 21:2,11,19.
