You have changed the image URL in the 'image' tag but you have not changed it in the 'itunes:image' tag, and that is what is applicable here.
iTunes is looking for an image at
and not finding one there. When you have amended the tag with the new URL it will probably take some days before the image appears in the Store.
The new image is apparently at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/89406141/Podcast/MilanVineyardChurch_144.png - this is 144x144 which is inadvisably small for iTunes.
Although your episodes, which have Feedproxy URLs, are appearing OK, iTunes does not get on at all well with Dropbox and you might be advised to consider hosting your image on an ordinary web server. However, it's possible that it will work once you've amended things.

I DID change the itunes:image tag, but iTunes does not seem to be looking in the new location. Here is the tag line from the source xml file on dropbox
The _144 image is for feedburner. The image file without the _144 is a larger (1400x1400, I believe) image for iTunes.
I have added the new-feed-url again, hoping to trigger a re-reading of the entire file and to reset the image information on the apple iTunes servers. Do you think this may help or work?
Thanks for the quick response.

Look at this.
When I use the feedburner feed validator against the original source xml file, I get this:
But when I look at the feedburner feed validator of the feedburner source, I get this
<itunes:image href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/89406141/MilanVineyardChurch.png" />
So feedburner is not parsing the source file properly and it is not picking up the change in the image location.

The 'itunes:new-feed-url' is only for moving to a different feed; it won't do anything else.
I'm afraid I have no idea why Feedburner is not picking up the changed URL - has it picked up any other changes?

Yes, feedburner has picked up all other location changes. The podcasts (mp3 files) are in new subfolders and they are all being listed and playing and updating in my podcatcher and rss apps. The image files are displayed properly by rss readers. The only thing that isn't working properly is the image file in iTunes, and it definitely looks like it's due to feedburner not picking up the change. I guess I will look to the feedburner community for answers, and in the meantime post a duplicate of the image file in the original location.
Thanks for your reply.
