Not long ago I received the book, “Beautiful on the Mountain.” I was given it with just a few hints as to what I was about to find. My curiosity became very active.
One hint was that I might see a comparison to the current life of OPC. It did not hurt my curiosity that the events took place not far from Orange at Graves Mill in Madison County.
The author, Jeannie Light, shares firsthand her challenge to get a church in the community active once again. She does a great job of giving the reader a good feel about those who lived in the area.
She is not a minister, but in all the challenges she encountered she walked hand in hand with God – prayer, study, meditation – each second of each day. She was allowed to preach in the church, but only after much doings. I leave you to find out what I mean by “much doings.”
I could not put the book down. It is an easy read, and very inspiring. I encourage everyone to get a copy and read the book. I will loan mine.
I am hoping that after reading the book, you will feel more optimistic about the future of OPC. I am now inspired to be more hopeful and to strengthen my prayer life, my time with God, and my reading of the Bible. The book is just that good.
Blessings, Anne S.
