Dear Friends and Family,
Eternity is coming!
Arthur Stace is most likely not a name that is familiar to you. He was an Australian whose early life was challenging – he became a ward of the state aged 12, then a teenage alcoholic and school drop-out. By age 15, he was an illiterate with jail time and on track to become a repeat offender. Stace’s life, however, was gloriously changed by the proclamation of God’s word through John Ridley. Ridley’s words – ‘Eternity, Eternity, I wish that I could sound or shout that word to everyone in the streets of Sydney. You've got to meet it, where will you spend Eternity?’ – shifted Stace’s focus. Eternity, assured for him by the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, took precedence. For the next 35 years, Stace went on to write the word ‘eternity’ half a million times in yellow chalk all over the city of Sydney. While perhaps not the means of proclamation I would choose today, it nonetheless caused millions to stop and think about what will happen after this life. Later known as Mr. Eternity, Stace married, led a productive life and finally entered eternity aged 82!
