thin place in East Liberty

Last night we went out to dinner with some good friends and on our way to the Abay, an Ethiopian restaurant, we stumbled upon what the Celts call a thin place where you are acutely aware of paradise or heaven having come to earth. The holiness of the moment causes you to stop, pause and praise God for his nearness. The experience is often revealed in the glory of God in creation (Psalm 19:1-6. Mindie Burgoyne says, "In simple terms a ‘thin place’ is a place where the veil between this world and the Other world is thin, the Other world is more near." Here is an attempt to capture my encounter with God in that thin place last night right Baum Blvd. in East Liberty.

I think it has been 8 years since I set foot in East Liberty, but my spirit is fed simply by hearing the words.
