We discuss Jesus' words about preparing a place for His disciples and His unity with the Father, Peter's explanation that we are living stones made into a dwelling place for God, David's song about God Himself being our refuge and shelter, and the martyrdom of Stephen, who is received into the presence of Jesus.
