Well, as you may have read, the world was supposed to end today. As of 8 PM, it still hasn't (unless I'm mistaken). I'm sure it will at some point in the next 4 hours...
In honor of the fact that heaven is about to gain some new residents later today, I thought I would post videos of a couple of different versions of my favorite song for a gospel quartet, a song called "Your First Day in Heaven," Yes, the theology is totally off, but nevertheless the song is just plain fun (and fun to sing, too!). The first version is by the Gaither Vocal Band and friends, and was made last year. The second version is from 1966 and is by the legendary gospel quartet The Imperials. Compare the two versions and see what you think.
Incidentally, one man sings in both versions. Can you guess which one?
Saint Meletius the General, Stephen, John, Serapion the Egyptian, Callinicus the Sorcerer, Theodore, Faustus and 1218 soldiers, women and children with them, among them Marciana, Susanna, Palladia, and the infants Kyriakos and Christian as well as the holy martyrs Faustus, Festus, Marcellus, Theodore, Meletius, Sergius, Marcellinus, Felix, Photinus, Theodoriscus, Mercurius and Didymus
