Sipping Coffee and Ideas shared her thoughts on slight disparity between mainstream views of heaven and what we’re coming to realize in class.  I thought this lawn display in my neighborhood would provide a fairly good illustration of the mainstream.  From Connie,

I did worry a little about what we would be doing, “once we got up there.” I mean really, I love to sing and I love to worship – but endlessly? For all of eternity? For ever and Ever? Really? And never do anything else?
