The Great Stone Face

"Look!" he whispered. "The Great Stone Face is coming to life". And once again Ernest was told of the ancient legend on the one who would arrive and bear the likeness of the Great Stone Face.

"The ancient prophecy - that the Great Stone Face would one day come to life in a person of great honor and nobility - finds its fulfillment not in people who are powerful according to the world's standards, but in one who exhibits Christ like love, integrity, and honesty."

A tale of wisdom, humility, grace and virtue.
