In times of doubt, fear, and loss, we turn to the songs and hymns that remind us that this world is not all there is--that what awaits us as followers of Jesus is a heavenly kingdom. Songs like "Face to Face," "Amazing Grace," "Victory in Jesus," and "I'll Fly Away" were written amid circumstances of great personal pain in the lives of the songwriters. In studying their stories, we can find even more comfort in our own circumstances. Join us to hear inspiring true stories that provide hope for this world and insight into the next as we study some of the great hymns and songs about Heaven.
