Description

This sermon, given by David Michael Firestone, is about the power of pray, an instruction to keep faith in God no matter what happens, and the idea that loved ones can be seen again in Heaven. (David Michael Firestone is a member of the church congregation, not an ordained pastor.)

The submitter gave the following information about the artifact's history: The sermon, Resurrection, was inspired by the day that our family spent at Grandma Mary's bedside as she was dying.  We were there on June 1, 2015.  Then she died at 2 AM the next morning.  The beginning of the sermon describes how I felt about that day with her.  I wanted the listeners to know that God promises that believers will be brought home to Him, and we will see our loved ones again if they believe.
