So I'll be coming to share with the YA's on November 17th... I want to discuss HEAVEN with you. What is it? What will it be like? What/who else will be there? So we can begin the discussion here, if you have questions fire away. It'll help me get ready for the evening. This will be a discussion, I don't plan to do all the talking (for a change).
Alan Jones That's a great question. I'd doesn't have a very satisfactory answer from a western perspective, but if you can think in terms of mythologies and miracles - the way the original audience of the Bible did - it has a great answer... I'll be ready on Friday
Riley Egge I am excited for this. I think the topic is pretty interesting. One thing that Genesis is that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. So God wasn't living in heaven, he created it as well. I think sometimes we separate heaven and earth as if they are somehow very distant from each other.. But then why are we supposed to pray "on earth as it is in heaven?" I think they are closely connected.
