I’d like to end with a poem from God’s Rhyme I wrote after attending Cornerstone church for awhile.

THE CORNERSTONE (God’s Rhyme, Pg. 122)

The cornerstone, the first block laid,

upon which the foundation is made,

in which the line is straight and true,

the beginning holding the clue.

A clue of the temple

A view of the house

A pew of His church

The few

The blessed

The meek

The poor

The Spirit

The Son

The Father

All found in . . . 

the cornerstone.

Old and new, we can read testaments

of the blocks which rest on the cornerstone;

so perfect in line, lest we lament,

lest we reject, lest we build on our own.

Jesus, the cornerstone on which we build our lives;

a temple, we as one become a church

building on His perfection we strive

through His life, we end our search.

Building on the cornerstone

we are no longer a stranger,

we no longer build alone,

not since that birth in the manger.

“We are members of His household,

Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

With Christ Jesus as the chief cornerstone.”  Ephesians 2: 19, 20, NIV

Before the beginning and beyond the end,

Jesus, our Savior, is our cornerstone;

building on a life, a death that God did send,

the house He builds becomes our own.

(Yes, He was the cornerstone the Psalms tell us the builders rejected.

 But for those who believe, He is the cornerstone for all that is good.

 In Him we have our faith, our hope, our joy, our eternal salvation.)


This is about the church I started attending while in Bible study.  In researching "cornerstone" I was amazed how many songs have been written about it.  I just wanted to express my gratitude for finding the Cornerstone.


Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for Your leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We pray that today has been pleasing to You and honors Your glory.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs, healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith. 


We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  We pray for the nation of Ukraine and its people; its leaders, those who have fled the country to find safety, those who are still trying to leave the country and those who are staying to fight the invading army of their enemy.   May their faith and determination be an example to the entire world.

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.
