November 5, 2023 (All Saints Sunday)
What food would you want to eat with a beloved person in your life who has died? We all have those foods and those memories with those dear to us who have joined the church eternal.
We tend to think about heaven as a place where our soul or spiritual substance goes. It turns out though, this isn’t really what the Bible teaches. Working with Revelation 7:9-17, Pastor Rob offers that what God intends is an “apokatastatis”, that is, a restoration and renewal of all things in Jesus Christ.
This restoration includes our bodies! Which means, of course, we can dream of eating our favorite cookies with our beloved ones.
