According to the people at "Ripley's Believe it or Not," the cornerstone of the Washington Monument, which was laid on July 4, 1884, disappeared and has never been found. How could someone have carried off the stone which weighed 24,500 pounds? Jesus is the cornerstone of our faith and the church. Some might argue that our cornerstone is missing. This is not true. He is a living stone and he lives and reigns in his church from the glories of heaven. He is not lost, we know where he is.
