"...to console those who mourn in Zion,
to give them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they may be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified."
To all of you following and/or participating in our online study through Jonathan Edwards' Charity and Its Fruits, I'd like to offer my thanks for your patience during this somewhat unplanned hiatus. Among our local church study group we've experienced the birth of a son and the illness and death of a mother. The mother being my own, I've had to set this study aside for a few weeks, but am about ready to resume, with a slight change in schedule to accommodate the needs of our Chico group. We plan to resume our meetings on Wednesdays instead of Mondays and beginning on the 13th of this month. I will try to have the study and discussion notes posted here that evening before my bedtime.
