Based on the New York Times best selling book of the same name. When a semi-truck crushed pastor Don Piper's car on January 18, 1989, he was killed instantly. The first rescue workers to arrive on the scene confirmed him dead, and Don's body laid under a tarp for the 90 minutes following. His soul though, was experiencing love, joy, and life like he'd never known before. Don was in Heaven.
Through the prayers of another pastor, Don was brought back to life, and he became a living miracle. For Don though, this was a miracle he wish hadn't happened. Replacing Heaven's bliss was excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With continued prayers and support by his family and friends, both near and far, Don held onto hi ... more

Our culture is obsessed with self. Online. In our schedules. In our relationships. At every turn we seem to care about only one thing, "What is in it for me?" And it isn't just the rich or famous. It is a fixation for nearly all of us. We post pictures of ourselves. Of what we are eating. Of what we are doing. We are saturated with self, almost to the point where it begins to seem normal. So many of the old fashion virtues appear to have disappeared over the years. Holding the door open for someone. Saying, "No. After you", not only with our words but also with our actions. Looking out for others. Giving a helping hand. Such others-entered behaviors are scarce these days.
Because the normal default is to look out for ... more
