. . . having been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets . . .

         (Ephesians 2:20)

 

In the folklore writings of Mark Cantly, one day the angel Gabriel is in his Manhattan apartment, observing the human traffic passing by on the streets below. While doing so, he reports, “Today Lawd, eva thang a nailed down is a comin’ loose.” These days we ask, “Is there anything viable, durable, and unchangeable that we can latch on to when everything is coming loose and falling apart? The answer to that is “yes.” We can stand upon the certainty of hope that the church of the Lord Jesus Christ goes on.
