Elevation of the parish: in heaven


The Appalachian Trail crosses the road just here. Just 3,165 feet. The peaks in the parish go up 5000 feet plus. Not far from the hermitage the peaks can get well beyond 6000 feet. On the other side of Asheville, the next big city over the way, some peaks edge on 7000 feet. These are the tallest mountains in the Eastern United States. Mount Washington up in New Hampshire comes in below Mount Mitchell here. Of course, there is nothing as high as the Himalayas or the Rockies or Alps or Andes or Atlas Mountains, nothing like that. No, no. Just humble mountains here. Heck, the tallest of the megatall buildings like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai seem to be about to get in the competition if there is one.

But, in Jesus, you can touch heaven from the deepest valley as well, right? Right?
