James Oglethorpe founded the city of Savannah, Georgia. He had already decided how to lay out the city before he even knew exactly where he would build it. He took a Roman encampment as his plan - a grid. All the streets were to meet at right angles with squares at regular intervals. There are 21 of them in the historic district of Savannah. No other city on earth has anything like it.
We may be certain that Jesus already had Heaven's plan in mind when he said, "I go to prepare a place for you." And we may be certain that Heaven is like no other city!
-Robert Shannon, Preaching March/April 1998
