One of my favorite Christmas carols is “Go Tell it on the Mountain” — and I especially love this rendition by James Taylor.
Recently, while listening to that song on my car radio, traversing through the flat lands of suburban streets in the midwest, I couldn’t help but think: If we’re gonna tell it from the mountain, we’ll have to walk through our share of valleys.
I thought back to my college discipler, Sarah. While I was home one summer and wishing I could be doing something “big” for God that year, she wrote me that “We all long for mountain-top experiences, but the fruit that lasts grows in the valley.”
Isn’t that the truth?!!
