“I’ll be back.”

To believe in an afterlife is to believe that you will be back. Maybe you won’t be back to the exact same spot that you left. Since death is a tragedy for most people, I doubt that most people would want to go back to the exact spot of their death. I think that the back is actually where you started. If God is love and we started in the mind of God then I guess we just collapse back into love.

I invite you to pray the last words of Carroll Parr:

“I’ll be back.”

 

Amen.
