Canada's Premier Hub For Faith In Common Life

To Stop and Not Stay

Encounter the sacred at mountain's tip. Bring a piece of God's Withness back down to the valley. We have come to seek His face. 

 Come up above the clouds. Escape the noise. Step away from the valley and look around. The expanse of space, the bird’s eye view, the clarity. Approach the mountaintop of encounter. Here is where we come away. Here is where we reach for heaven. Here is where we receive and descend again with an extra measure of God With Us. Here is where we stop but do not stay.
