This is it. This is what everyone has been waiting for. I know you've thought, "Man, those folks at Zion are super cool and I would love to know what's going on in those crazy heads of theirs." Wish granted. The Zlog is a place for us to share what we're doing/reading/thinking/etc. and we really hope that you join the conversation in the comments section or come by and talk to us in person.

I'll kick this off by sharing something that I find powerful and provoking.  

     "Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain..." Exodus 19:3

     "I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain." Psalm 3:4 NIV

     "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence...When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by." Exodus 33:19 & 22

These are just three of a plethora of scriptures describing the relationship between God and mountains. Mountains are pretty great, but why would God choose a mountain as his resting place (for lack of a better term)? God doesn't do anything without a purpose in mind and I think He meant for us to learn from His choice of a mountaintop abode. Besides the countless metaphors between Christianity and mountains, I think God was telling us that we could always find Him in the mountains. I love getting outdoors because God's in the mountains, and if you go looking for him He might just pass by.
