I’m a big fan of Heaven. I’d wager to say “Heaven” is the Christian’s greatest hope—not so much the mansions and crowns. No, Heaven’s glory lies in reunion, reunion with God and reunion with His (our) people. That and the healing. And tear-drying. And the forever light, so much light.
This video is the last in a series of three my husband and his friend Spencer made in conjunction with Round Rock’s latest sermon series “Requiem Required.” It’s about grieving well, about the potential of grief to shape us, about God’s ability to comfort, about hope.
You should watch the videos. And you should watch the sermons too.
One thing I love about these videos is the way they leverage the experiences of our individual members for the good of the whole body.
We church people MUST do a better job of listening to (and telling) one another’s stories. Because my story is your story and yours is mine. When we tell our stories (ALL the stories) we comfort and encourage and inspire and challenge one another.
I love my church because we’re trying to give everyone a voice, harvesting stories, empowering our members to tell them, and blessing our entire community with powerful, life-changing messages.
P.S. Here’s a pic of the boys at work. God’s making beautiful things through them.
