Jordan and I went up with my mom and watched the sunset over Boise. There’s a big cross up there which is lit every night for the city to see.
Being on a rock like that brings much to mind: Mount Zion, the stone table in Clive Lewis’ Narnia, Jerusalem, and of course, Jesus.
Jesus wept as he approached Jerusalem. The Gospel according to Luke reads,
Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation. (ESV Translation)
Jesus knows a lot about making peace and I am trying to learn from him. How about you? What do you like to make and who taught you how?
