Last Words

An interesting story from Orlando, Florida -

A Presbyterian minister collapsed and died at the pulpit after saying "And when I go to heaven..."

The Reverend Jack Arnold, who was 69 years old, was nearing the end of his sermon Sunday at Covenant Presbyterian Church when he grabbed the podium before falling to the floor.

Before collapsing, Arnold quoted the 18th-century Bible scholar John Wesley who said, "Until my work on this earth is done, I am immortal. But when my work for Christ is done ... I go to be with Jesus."
