Down To Earth:

The Effect of Worship that Ascends to Heaven


Thema: Renewed Weekly

Douglas Wilson takes shots at the individualist mindset that goes into modern worship and discusses a proper perspective of entering the heavenlies through worship.

"What happens when a small group of saints gathers in a clapboard community church somewhere out in the sticks? At their call to worship, they ascend to the City of God, to the heavenly Jerusalem. They walk into the midst of innumerable angels. They come to the general assembly of the universal Church, and come into the presence of God Himself."

Similitudes: Stories with a Point
The Great Lady - Douglas Wilson

"She was dressed in white, a long robe that fell gracefully to the ground. She had a diadem across her forehead, and long blonde hair that fell back across her shoulders. Andrew could see at a glace that she was a very great princess, a woman of high nobility. He stopped right where he was, feeling numb."

Pictura: A Story, not too Long
In Which We Begin - Nathan Wilson

"The little man held out the bowl and Tom dipped his hand, and immediately knew that things would get on all right. Pudding came and pudding went, and it kept on doing so for sometime until it had gone for good. It was then that Tom spoke again, for the little man was busy licking the bowl."
