Going Though (to) Hell
On a hot Oklahoma summer day, just weeks before his 64th birthday, George Montgomery died in the emergency room of the Miranda Valley Community Hospital in Miranda, Oklahoma. Death launched his mission to reunite with Emily, his wife; his love and life for over fifty years. Emily had died last year, and George was confident she was now living in Heaven waiting for him. He just needed to get to her.
Unfortunately, upon his death, George was not instantaneously transported to the Promised Land as he had been led to believe in church. Rather, he found himself standing at the entrance to “hell”, with a formidable, if not impossible task to complete before he could enter paradise and reunite with Emily.
His assignment would be no easy one. He was required to find a person, any one person, whom he had transgressed against while on earth and ask for (and be granted) their forgiveness. Hell, he discovered, was worse than anything he could have ever imagined. The place was evil-hot, dark and full of scary, snake-like creatures hiding in wait. The creatures were ferocious, all eager to inflict pain; just for the … hell of it.
To complicate matters, everyone in hell needed to find forgiveness in order to be released from their own personal torment. Given their own predicaments, few, if any, were willing to forgive another. George’s perilous journey through hell leaves him exhausted, frustrated and feeling hopeless. Unless he is able find the secret of forgiveness, mercy and grace, he will spend “forever” in suffering and torment, never again to see his beloved Emily.
