Finally a very interesting offer on the ‘box’. It comes form ABC who brought us the ubiquitous ‘Lost’ ( just hope it doesn’t drag and meander just as bad as ‘Lost’.
‘Flashforward’ works under the premise that on a particular September day in 2009 (almost) everybody in the world has a 2 minutes and 17 seconds of fainting, being knocked out.
And here comes the really intriguing factor – they all see themselves in exactly six months from now. Not ‘how’ or ‘why’ they got to that particular place in their lives. Just a glimpse. Almost cryptic. For some it is good news for others not… Divided we were – divided we remain.
In the series they will try to solve the mystery and I will spare you any other unnecessary details. My question is ‘what would you do if you saw a glimpse of your future in 6 months from now? Would you change anything? How?
As a follower of Christ – I know (should know) what the future brings. Does that make any different to my life? A wise man who sacrificed his life as a martyr in the Amazonian jungle once wrote in his diary: ‘Make sure that when it comes to die you only have one thing left to do: die.’ (Jim Elliot)
PS – I am planning a sermon series on Sunday nights looking t what Jesus teaches about His return.
