Some stories become like a holy place: the ones that resonate deeply and even become a guide through the vicissitudes of life. There’s Moses on Mount Horeb, called there by God. For us the mountain becomes a constant reminder that there are meeting places on earth, where human beings actually encounter the Creator God who steps into human life with power to save what is good and undo what is evil.
