Memorial Service, Jerry Liddell
Sometimes in the midst of our sadness and our busyness there are quiet moments of joy. We wake up early and walk outside and the stars are shining in the morning sky. We hear the voice of someone we love, calling from another room.
Or maybe like Jerry we’re helping someone with a computer or we’re taking care of our daughter or we’re just staying home and going about our routines and for a moment we feel happy and free. We feel like ourselves. We are fully alive.
This is what heaven is like and in fact this is why we believe in heaven. Because we’ve glimpsed it, here and now. We believe in the afterlife because we believe in this life.
When we get to heaven we will recognize it.
