Sculptors must have a stone to make a man-like statue – which is still stone and will perish.

Painters must have canvas to make a man-like portrait – which remains canvas and will perish.    

Ministers work with a soul to impress God’s image on it – which will be there forever and ever.

Lead to Worship

Men who feel quite adequate

To tell you which “i” to dot,

To tell you what you are to do – not;

Ought also to be able

To tell you how humbly to praise,

How in quietude and true gratitude

You should voice and hands raise.

We lack not for “liners up,”

And men who love that line,

We need men who will lead to worship

Men who live and love in the divine.

Oh, may the incense of my heart

Toward heaven daily depart!

The New Jerusalem

– is a 1500 mile cube. It is over 1472 miles from Portland, ME to Key West, FL.  And it is 1502 miles from NYC to Rapid City, SD.  (And the City is that tall.)

If each “estate” is ½ mile wide,  ½ mile long,  ½ mile high there could be  21,952,000,000 “estates” in the New Jerusalem.

(Is your name on one?)
