‘The first hour of heaven is like an endless room filled with 2-top coffee tables…’

So says my friend Scot McKnight, author of the Jesus Creed blog and book, who preached for us this weekend. In advance of his upcoming book, A Kingdom Conspiracy, Scot preached on the church as a kingdom community of forgiveness and reconciliation.

We should be about the work of forgiving the people in our lives, Scot argues, because we’ll have to do the first hour in heaven any way.

His text was the parable of the unforgiving servant in Matthew 18.

You can listen to his sermon here below, in the sidebar to the right, or download it in iTunes here.

Scot will be our guest preacher next weekend at Aldersgate’s main campus.

He will also inaugurate our new season of Pub Theology on Saturday evening- that’s this Saturday- beginning at 6:30 here.

I invite you to check Scot for both opportunities.

If you’re interested in Pub Theology, email me at jason@aldersgate.net as space is limited.

At all services and at Pub Theology we’ll have copies of Scot’s (not yet released) available for you.
