The Rev. Robert Chase
"I have been to the mountaintop," said Dr. King, and even people who live in low-lying seacoast towns know what he was referring to. The image of the mountaintop runs through Scripture as that place where the human experience touches the Divine, that symbolic place where God is present and mere mortals can catch a glimpse of ultimate truth. And so we fondly recall those mountaintop experiences that happen on retreat or at church camp, upon some extraordinary accomplishment or in some exotic destination--where the cares of this world seem to recede and we are better able to understand who we are and why we are here on this planet.

It had been a wonderful trip with 24 other friends, family and colleagues. In spite of some cold, windy, wet weather we had enjoyed our visit to Israel. The Holy Land, as it is often called, is a fascinating place.

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Montgomery
The Rev. Dr. Stephen Montgomery leads us into the new church year by exploring the promises of God to a fearful Israel in Isaiah 2--promises whose fulfillment may be "closer than you think."
The Rev. John Gunn
This episode of Be Still and Know delves into war and the mistaken notions of protection and insurance from attack that armament can provide. The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "In times past, fearsome weapons have never deterred man from going to war. We shall have to look for peace in another direction; to the Prince of Peace whose birth was heralded by the Angels saying, Glory to God in the highest and on Earth, peace, goodwill toward men."
