Tonight I did the sermon at the evening service of Swainsboro First United Methodist Church about Heaven. The discussion in the sermon is on what Heaven is like and why it should be appealing to us and looks at it from a Biblical prospect from Genesis to Revelations and that Heaven should be fun when we get there. You can listen to it at http://swainsboro-umc-evening.sermon.net/da/119786963/play or there is a link on the articles page on my web site or on the sermons page on the church web site (www.swainsborofumc.org)
Couple illustrations I did not include but will mention here are:
First a friend who we were both friends with a person who died recently told me that the diseased friend will have lots of fun with me when I get to heaven and that she and I better not do every thing until she gets there. My comment was that we would not do everything and then all three of us could do lots of stuff. The deceased person had assured me a week before she died she was going to heaven.
Second a former Holiness preacher told me that we should cry when babies are born and celebrate when people die.
DwightTO SUBSCRIBE This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think.
