Episode:Heaven Is Not the Last Stop, with Sheila Keene-Lund
Sheila Keene-Lund, author of Heaven Is Not the Last Stop, joined us in our ongoing Secondary Works series. Sheila was raised as a Catholic and after two near death experiences at a young age, she began to search for more complete answers about life after death than those provided by Catholic doctrines. She embraced Eastern mysticism at the age of 18 and for over twenty years these blended beliefs co-existed in her spiritual repertoire until she honestly questioned their effect on her life. Sheila found The Urantia Book in 1992 and has devoted much of the last fifteen years to writing Heaven Is Not the Last Stop which reflects her journey to reconcile the differences. It has been a journey of research and reflection, of theoretical and creative insight, putting the Big Picture of Existence together.
Sheila was Marketing Manager a local software company before starting her own business and developed a set of twelve standard operation procedure manuals pertaining to all aspects of nursing home and assisted living environments. She founded the Adopt-a-Grandparent Foundation, whose mission was to promote meaningful relationships between the elderly and the youth of the community, developing a unique program for matching grandparents to youth and documented the system so that it could be introduced in any city.
