1 days 19 hours ago | | | Email

Last Sunday afternoon (Sept. 7), those who looked at Cumberland Mountain from the Tennessee and Virginia side got to see a beautiful cloud formation that draped over the top half of the mountain.I’ve seen it do that only a couple of times, so it’s not that common and was awesome to see.

It was a neglected teaching, I think, because the Spirit seems mysterious and, at that time, churches were trying to be logical about faith and avoid anything that seemed too supernatural or mystical.
