Job wrote: "Surely there is a mine for silver, And a place where gold is refined. Iron is taken from the earth, and copper is smelted from ore. Man puts an end to darkness, and searches every recess for ore in the darkness and the shadow of death. He breaks open a shaft away from people; In places forgotten by feet they hang far away from men... But underneath it is turned up as by fire; Its stones are the source of sapphires, and it contains gold dust. That path no bird knows, Nor has the falcon's eye seen it. The proud lions have not trodden it, or has the fierce lion passed over it. He puts his hand on the flint; He overturns the mountains at the roots. He cuts out channels in the rocks, and his eye sees every precious thing. He dams up the streams from trickling; What is hidden he brings forth to light."
When we read these words we knew immediately... we do have to dig deeper and look after one another for joyful and sharpening conversations, for resourceful coalition and spiritual protection.
