A friend of mine went to his homeland ... and sent me a rock (at my request)
Coming from Mt. Gerezim this rock must have witnessed such history.
According to my friend:
"It may have been part of a Samaritan temple or a roman road ~ or both. Abraham may have tossed it around. Joshua may have kicked it. Jesus may have sat on it ~ well, the jesus bit I doubt. Truth is tho your rock has seen history, even the boring bit with the byzantines"
I love my rock. I have promised to never use it in any of my own rituals. I am honored that it was chosen for me and it is here.
