Hello, John and Doves,
Suzi, I have another scripture for you, courtesy of John Tng: http://www.fivedoves.com/tng/gospelinstone.htm.
Look for this post on the home page of Five Doves, under THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
Its title is: "The Gospel in the Stones!"
In this post by John Tng, dated 19 Jan, 2005, is a gem:
"Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In." Isaiah 58:12
So take heart. Jesus is all about rebuilding relationships!
