His wounds cover up our tears

The body of Christ is in the e.r. Rush. Scalpels, Needles, stethoscope, gyroscope, ekg, gps, ... the list goes on.
Wounded at Calvary Hill. Multiple lacerations, beatings, floggings. Left half naked on the cross. Too grim to bear.

Code Blue. Get a doctor in the house immediately. We must rescue Him. We are losing His vital signs.

That is what the scene probably would have looked like if played on a modern C.S.I. detective series. 'But it is a good thing that Jesus went the way he did. And the detectives in this case keep changing to try to win the case to their side, but God has covered up the wounds by our tears. It is the involvement of sharing in the suffering that we will all draw closer to Him. No matter what the personal struggle or pain you have experienced. glory to God.

Off topic here. Just wanted to mention that I got your note. A signed copy. Well. I could send you one if you would like to send me a check to cover the cost of the book and shipping. I'm not quite sure what the shipping would be. Maybe around $2 or so? The book is $15.

If you're still interested, you can send your check to my attention at:

Community Bible Church
301 Chadeayne Road
Ossining, NY 10562

Also, tell me how you would like it signed. (To your first name or no name at all. A note... or just a signature?)

As for your other question, tell me more about the writing group: its structure (what you generally do for the two hours), goals, size, and what the group might want topic-wise from a guest speaker.

Thanks for your support of my work. Blessings... LL
