Everything is Allowed

A parishioner gave me a copy of Randy Alcorn’s collection of quotations about heaven, the new earth, and the life after death. The book is over 600 pages, and I can already imagine myself enjoying it for years to come. What will appear here for many months will be various quotations from the book. I hope they will be satisfying and provide a taste of heaven.

“It’s all right,” Peter. “…I’ve a feeling we’ve got to the country where everything is allowed.”
