THE WISH FULFILLED

Janet and I were waiting in the valley of the Hall of Reception in good time to welcome Reg from his joyous experience. We had had a splendid holiday in the Plane Between. While we lazed on the beach, went swimming, and paid visits to the other houses, Janet and I talked . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 1

THE MISTY SCREEN

When we at last reached our destination we moved forward over the parkland at its entrance with intense interest. It was laid out like a pleasant garden with walks, flowerbeds and seats set here and there.

‘It looks as though there has been a visitor from the Hall of Gardens,’ Reg exclaimed.

REG’S FIRST CHARGE

It was in solemn mood that we set off on our return journey. We were not unhappy; far from it, but a new aspect of the tremendous plan had been shown to us. The upward climb of the learning, developing soul had been revealed as of such vast proportions that we could . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 3

PUZZLED

Now I am going to decide the next journey.’ As I spoke we began to speed off over the valley. We travelled so swiftly that we had reached the highest mountain before Reg replied.

‘Where is it this time?’ He looked down with interest on the snow covered peak.

‘That is a secret!’ I . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 4

HIGH ADVENTURE

‘I remember this!’ Ronald cried as we reached the sea. They all stood looking at it hungrily, revelling in its peace and beauty. Behind us a great rock rose high above our heads, its jutting edges sharp and glistening. We leaned against it while the waves ran smoothly up over the sand, foaming . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 5

ON THE MOUNTAIN

While we ate, Greig and Rose came in for a good deal of teasing, but they were much too happy to mind. Greig explained that he and Rose had met on earth and in fact, knew each other well.

‘We did not know about this however!’ he smiled.

‘Row could we?’ Rose . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 6

SURPRISES

When we had said farewell to our guests from earth, Reg declared that he was hungering for some sport with Robbie in the Hall of Adventure. His only doubt was Robbie’s whereabouts. At once I reminded him of the power of his thought. ‘Now is your chance to try it out!’

THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY

Almost at once, Janet came to us. We said little concerning Rose, for Reg had already told the news. Besides, a matter of far greater importance (yes, even than the arrival of our beloved guest of the Plane Between) was occupying our minds. We had been summoned to the Hall of . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 8

THIS WONDERFUL PLACE

‘I would like to see how Rose and Greig are,’ Janet said. So we set off to find out if they had arrived. The ranks of those in white tunics parted for us as we went among them. Everyone seemed happy to have us, looking respectfully at our rich, green robes.

ANGELS’ SONGS

Before our dazzled eyes there appeared an oval of golden light. It seemed to rotate with rapidity, sending out spears of shining rays, and then, as I looked intently, the focus of my vision changed and I saw an angel standing in the midst. He was tall, and of great beauty, his eyes . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 10

STARS

At once two men came to stand beside him. I caught my breath at the sight of one of them. It was Richard, whom we had seen so long ago receive his first Star ! Janet, too, had seen him. She turned to smile at me, as though to say, ‘This is our friend, . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 11

THE GREATEST JOY OF ALL

How eagerly I watched Him as He walked into the dazzling glory of the light! How I yearned to follow as the majestic Figure began to ascend! Then, coming clearly into my mind, as though spoken into my ear, came the words: ‘He will not leave you comfortless.’ . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 12
