J. Michael Shannon | Professor of preaching at Cincinnati Bible Seminary, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Years ago when Bishop Brown of the Episcopal Church came to speak in Virginia's historic St. Luke's Church, Isle of Wight County, he said, "It has been said that Bishop Brown wants to be buried in St. Luke's graveyard. That's nonsense. I'm here to tell you that Bishop Brown doesn't want to be buried anywhere."
While we understandably hold on to the life we know, as Christians we know our final destiny is not in the graveyard.
