Postcard to Heavenby Duane Parrish
How can we know where the testing times in our lives come from? Do they come from a loving God? Or do they come from the age-old deceiver? How can we tell the difference, and is there always eventual relief from pain? When the Gethsemane experiences come to us - when
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord."
How can we know where the testing times in our lives come from? Do they come from a loving God? Or do they come from the age-old deceiver? How can we tell the difference, and is there always eventual relief from pain? When the Gethsemane experiences come to us - when circumstances bring sweatdrops of blood - how do we find our way back to the mountaintop?
During the trials, each human finally submits to light or darkness.
A man puts a gun to his head and prepares to pull the trigger. As his wife begs him to stop, a "dark and sinister altar call" is inviting.
Who is this man? A drug addict? A hopeless alcoholic? Is he hiding a secret that promises to be exposed to the whole, cruel world? Duane Parrish was none of those people. Rather, as pastor of a vibrant church in Oregon, his reputation as an eloquent speaker had gained him a measure of notoriety - until emergency brain surgery had tore him from all his gifts. No longer able to speak or write, this once-effective man of God now stood teetering on the edge of a black chasm.
In a Postcard to Heaven, Parrish points to that harrowing day in his office as the turning point in his life. Dropping the gun, he wept with his faithful wife and determined to see what God could do with a man seemingly with nothing.
