to the people at “Ripley’s Believe it or Not,” the cornerstone of
the Washington Monument, which was laid on July 4, 1884, disappeared
and has never been found. How could someone have carried off the
stone which weighed 24,500 pounds?

Jesus is
the cornerstone of our faith and the church. Some might argue that our
cornerstone is missing. This is not true. He is a living stone and he
lives and reigns in his church from the glories of heaven. He is not
lost, we know where he is.
