One of the primary ways we can be the church in the community is by following the example of Jesus in showing love to the needy and homeless in our town. This post has some practical examples from Sam Riviera about how he loves the homeless in his city.
Many wonder what heaven will be like. It will be like Susan Boyle getting to do what she was made for. It will be like life, but without the pain and death. Heaven is not about sitting on clouds playing harps. It will be like this life, but without the pain, regret, and fear. Life will be what it was always meant to be.
