Hearts of Stone.
When we look at our darkening world we see war, poverty, violence, and death.....
But most of all we see hearts of stone.
The hard-heartedness and cruelty of those in positions of privilege is unprecedented.
And what is it that hardens our hearts but fear.
We have little faith.
Faith that God will provide.
But God said,"I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh." Ezekiel 11:19b (NRSV)
This is God's promise.
And the world needs it more than ever.
