"But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as in former days, says the Lord of hosts. For there shall be a sowing of peace; the vine shall yield its fruit, the ground shall give its produce, and the skies shall give their dew; I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things." Zechariah 8:11,12 (NRSV)
There is always a remnant.
Even now, as the Christian Churches of the West decline, there is still a remnant, small as it is.
Let us hope that there will be a sowing of peace and that the dove will be seen once again in the earth.
