Glorifying God Atop a Pillar of Stone

One of the saints commemorated last Sunday was St. Simeon the Stylite.  I’ve discussed stylites before on this blog: http://holyresurrection.areavoices.com/2012/12/11/st-daniel-the-stylite/

A contemporary example in Georgia is highlighted here and worth reading:

This is a fascinating post and I hope people read about Fr. Maxime and the reestablishment of a stylite upon this particular rocky outcrop.

As a quick note to readers of this blog:  I will get to a post on Christian history in North Dakota.  The last week of August I was at Dobbins Air Base for training in Active Relationship Counseling.  It was great to meet other Air National Guard chaplains.  More later.
