All people are under God’s care, but He has a particular regard to His church.  This is the signet on His hand, as a bracelet upon His arm.  This is His garden, which He delights to dress.  If He prunes it, it is to purge it.  If He digs about His vine and wounds the branches, it is to make it beautiful with new clusters and restore it to a fruitful vigor. – Stephen Charnock (1628-1680)
