God is our Keystone
I was just reminded of a wonderful book that I read a few years ago called The Ramsey Scallop . The author is Frances Temple. In the book, Thomas and Elenor are sent on a pilgrimage, the Ramsey Scallop, as atonement for the sins of a community in the Middle Ages. While on their difficult and perilous pilgrimage, they meet a friar who is watching over the building of a cathedral. He points out to the teens that the keystone keeps the cathedral together. The keystone is at the top of a cathedral dome and if removed, the whole church falls apart. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one God. God is our keystone. Without Him the whole world crumbles. Let's remember Him as we go through our day-to-day routines.
