On Holy Ground

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”

When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”

And Moses said, “Here I am.”

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:1-5


Join me over the next 31 Days as I explore in word and image what it means to stand on Holy Ground.

    I’m so glad to spend the next 31 Days with you in this soothing and welcoming place. I am humming my favorite version of Standing on Holy Ground. Years ago I had the privilege of hearing the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir rehearse for Palm Sunday. Their rendition of the hymn was a foretaste of the choirs in heaven, indeed. Thank you for prompting that memory.
