ON a Mission

This morning at church we had a kick off for three new classes. They were a course on Heaven, the letters of 1st, 2nd and 3rd John. And there was a class on managing your money. Being finitely human, I could only chose 2 of the 3 classes to attend.

The course on heaven provoked a good controlled discussion that stayed within the parameters of our text and expressed perceptions that we have of what heaven is going to be like. Since there is only eyewitness of Jesus of what it is like, the topic of a visit to heaven is going to be rare on the news network of CNN. Yet, it is the place where Christians are going to spend a real long time at and we need to be better prepared of sharing with people what it will be like and the requirements for getting there. It will be a very lively and challenging class.

Since we were never able to solve life's dilemmas through the contemporary issues time, this new class will offer us opportunities for us to share our faith better and be better able to give an answer for the hope that is within us.

In the letters that the apostle John wrote to believers after he wrote the Gospel of John, he addresses the reader as a dear child. As a child, there is room for hope to emerge and a way for potential to be born. It is always good to go back to the basics and find a way to unite with others.
