What is Heaven? Or better yet, where is Heaven?
Growing up in the Church I was really only exposed to one idea of Heaven. It was a place where we go after we die. Future tense. Somewhere else.
In this chapter Rob explores a different version of the Heaven story. One that speaks to the here and now more than it does the there and someday. That’s a significant shift for many Christians, particularly those who have grown up in the church in America over the past 100 years or so.
What were your impressions of Heaven growing up? Did the idea of “a church service that never ends” make you want to go there? Has thinking of Heaven brought pain when thinking about those you love who may not be there?
We’ll stick with chapter 2 until Friday, March 25th, but you can always revisit previous chapters at any time.
