I tune the instrument here at the door...
Since I am coming to that holy room,
Where, with thy choir of saints for evermore,
I shall be made thy music; as I come
I tune the instrument here at the door,
And what I must do then, think here before.
- J. Donne, "Hymn to God, My God, in My Sickness"
In 2011, George Beverly Shea was 103 and still singing. Randy Alcorn was speaking about Heaven at the Cove and posted several videos on FB. (Thanks, Kamilla.)
If you go over to YouTube, you'll find this comment: "I worked at this guy's (Shea's) house in the Chicago suburbs in 1984 fixing his fireplace. He was 75. He wheeled a wheel barow full of broken brick and mortar up a plank ramp into the back of my truck. I told him I didn't like Billy Graham and I smoked in his house. I was lost and trying to provoke him. He was very kind to me. Two weeks later I got saved. I helped him get ready for the BG crusade in Bristol and they were still talking about it 13 years later when I lived in Bristol in 1997."
