Short Description

This podcast is a part two in a 3 part series on the topic of heaven. In this episode we will explore "place" how we find our heavenly home.

Some key takeaways from the episode include: how when we die we simply move from one world to another. The concept of “place” means going to where your love is and that heaven is formed out of these communities with similar loves. What the process is like when you die, what angels are and their purpose in welcoming you in heaven. How heaven is organized, that when you die you understand more fully God’s plan for you and how you ultimately find your house in heaven.
