The first installment from photojournalist Katie Woodward Archibald in our “Holy Space” series (Tuesdays and Thursdays) comes from Mt. Sinai…

As I began my 3,000-stair descent down Mount Sinai I was a bit uneasy.  No one else could be found on my route and I wondered if I were suddenly lost amidst the handful of shriveled shrubs, massive boulders, and sands far beyond counting which covered the Egyptian peninsula.  I could not be too lost though, right?  I was on Mount Sinai; God was surely here at least, I hoped…

For more reflections on this moment, stop by Katie’s blog. Got a holy space to share with us from your life? Send it to me at kristinarobbdover@gmail.com and I’ll republish it at the end of the week.
