The Far Country

One of my favorite musical artists is Andrew Peterson.  Apparently there is a significant number of pop culture Christianity that does not know who Andrew Peterson is.  This is a sad thing.  Anyway, his last album entitled “The Far Country” is built around the theme of earth (not heaven) being the far country.  He notes that most times Christ followers think of heaven as being the far country, meaning that earth is our home and heaven is this foreign place (or “far country”).  He goes on to say that in reality heaven is our home and earth is the foreign place (or “far country”).

Which is it for you?  Do you reside in the far country right now, or do you reside at home?
