FOR HERE WE HAVE NO Lasting City

Hello: My name is Andrew John. I have moved a lot in my life and so I do not usually say where I am "from" because I have had 30 physical addresses in my life so far. One of those addresses was many years ago in Eastern Oregon in the town of La Grande. The setting of this story was thus very familiar to me because I spent many hours hiking and driving around Eastern Oregon.... this sort of weirded me out a little when I first read the book. It was fairly boring living there and nothing as dramatic as this book ever happened at the time I lived there. There was a canoe race in the melt off rapids in the river one spring. I remember a wild game dinner I was invited to. Pretty tame stuff.

Hebrews 13:14 For here we have no lasting city, because we seek the one yet to come.

Howdy Andrew,
Yes, it more important to point where we are going and know that is our true residence than where we are, or have been.

Hi there aj!!! Scripture says that our citizenship is in Heaven and not on this earth. We are just passing through this life on our way to an eternal one provided for us through Jesus alone.

Hello Andrew. I too lived in Oregon for a few years, Portland. I am originally from Ga so when I first arrived I was awestruck with the snow parks, big evergreen trees, and the crystal waterfalls. I distinctly remember Multnomah Falls the first time I saw, I cried happy tears at the beauty of it. Reading The Shack took me back immediately to the beauty and tragedy of being there.
Welcome to the forum, may you feel at home in His grace and peace-
