Fun Fridays – August 31, 2018

The next time you complain about the commute to your local church or place of worship, consider this congregation. That is commitment!

I love the metaphor embedded in the story. “It can be a dangerous thing to go to a house of worship and present yourself before the Living God.”

    …wow. Talk about inspiration—both spiritual and creative. Thanks, Steve.

    That’s commitment–and something I could never do.

    Oh my goodness! What a great metaphor for the life of faith.

    God bless these people who attempt to do this. I have such a fear of heights that I could never do it myself. These people have great commitment.

    I couldn’t do this either. I have trouble watching the video!

    What dedicated believers! A testimony to faith and commitment.

    My palms a sweaty from watching! And to think they have to ascend/descend barefoot!!! We complain when we don’t have cushions on our chairs/pews! WOW…JUST WOW!

    Thanks for a great video, Steve! I could go to that church, but leaving would be another matter. Up isn’t usually a problem for me, but going down, where I can see where I’d splat if I fell… My old day job trained me too well to always look for the possible accidents before I did anything.

    Wow! Faith in the midst of earthly and rocky dangers.

    I’ll shut up now. Got nothing to complain about.

    Wow . . . what a beautiful inside! And how inspiring to climb those rocks every single day. Outside of being physically fit, their dedication is an inspiration.

    Wow! That’s just….wow!

    I feel this would intensify worship. Imagine putting that much work into going to church. Would it mean more to us to have to work that hard to get there when normally it would be quite easy in comparison?
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a thrilling and beautiful place of worship, thank you for sharing!

    What an incredible testimony to their faith! I’m not sure I could be a faithful attender of this particular church, but to experience it once would be invigorating!

    WOW! This video gives new meaning to “going to” church. It must take them hours to get up there with babies on their backs, no less. Not to mention being barefoot. What a sacrifice!

    Unlike those of us who live in the U.S., we don’t make that much of a sacrifice with our comfy, air-conditioned cars and sometimes, the church as no steps. They don’t leave after an hour, either.

    Their place of worship is beautiful. But, how they got those artifacts up that cliff is beyond me.

    Thanks so much for expanding my world, Steve. How in the world do the worshippers get back down?? Must be just as dangerous as climbing up – or worse!

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this awesome and inspiring testimony of faith. It gives new meaning to the phrase, “We bring our sacrifice of praise.”
