Hope is a "He"
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” John 14:6
“Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is so good, and by raising Jesus from death, He has given us new life and a hope that lives on.” 1 Peter 1:3
I’ve spent a fair amount of time in graveyards - the privilege of last words spoken before dirt is shoveled back into a hole, over a casket. Sometimes it has been for folks I barely knew - a part of being the preacher from “that church” when someone who used to be a member there passes on. Sometimes it has been for church members who have been closer than my own family members. And, after more than a few years of being a preacher, I get to be “the family preacher” who has a part in burying his own.
A graveyard is a logical place to go looking for history – for the last day to finally be etched on stone. There are not many stones that have to be re-etched because somebody died and then “did a Lazarus.” Dates on tombstones rarely need to be changed. A graveyard is a logical place to look for historical accuracy.
