Mountain Memories from Dixie Hanson
Mountain Memories at Holy Trinity
We received this “Mountain Memories” photograph
from Dixie Hanson in response to our
Summer Sermon Series titled, “Go Tell It On The Mountain.”
Our son, Micah, spent several years traveling in Asia and often found time to trek in the Himalayas. These are two photos where he reached the summit of Stok Kangri.
When he returned to the states, he developed an online business matching sherpas to trekkers using the contacts with sherpas that he made while there.
I sent Micah Pastor Erik’s message in the August Tempo Newsletter about the viewpoint from the mountain top and asked him to send a couple photos.
SUMMER SERMON SERIES
As we have done the last few summers, we are going to depart from the lectionary readings during the summer months and do a special series:
“Go Tell it on the Mountain: Peaks and People in Scripture.”
Many of us will not be traveling this summer to places like the mountains due to the pandemic, but we can still travel together through the mountains that we find in the Bible.
Lots of significant things happen in the Scripture when God’s people climb up a peak. We will explore these stories and what they might mean for us as we go through the summer months.
As we make this journey, we will be asking the congregation to participate by sharing their mountain experiences as well.
What are the peaks you have visited or seen?
What story could you tell about that time?
We invite you to send in a picture of your mountain trip to the church at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a paragraph explaining why that trip or image is significant to you.
These tales of people’s travels will transport us from where we are sheltering in place to other parts of our nation and world.
These pictures and paragraphs will be compiled and show up in our worship videos and perhaps even in a sermon or two as we discover how the story of Scripture weaves together with our own story.
