- In the West, churches strive to be inviting and accessible to all. The church and monestry on the top of this mountain in Northern Ethiopia defies this logic. Remote and high up, there are endless steps to take to the summit. Then there is a steep climb, where you have to haul yourself up on a leather rope. After that, more steps. Why build a holy place in such an uninviting location? The monks give three reasons. On the summit of this table mountain they are close to God, far from temptation and safe from the enemies. Everyday many men make the effort (and take the risk) to climb the rope and share in those blessings. Women, however, have to stay downstairs, so they don't take temptation up with them. They can share in the blessing by kissing the rope.#Ethiopia #backtojerusalem #chasingrevival #roadtripBiblestudy #riskychurch #menonly
