There’s a sermon on Cable Mountain waiting to be preached.
Southern Cross, Montana is a ghost town, a former mining community on Cable Mountain west of Anaconda. It’s also the site of St. Timothy’s Memorial Chapel, a tribute to the glory of God in loving memory of Timothy Dillon Bowman, the 18-year-old son who died tragically in a car accident following his freshman year at Stanford.
Amid the abandoned buildings of the Anaconda Mining Company, one might say that St. Timothy’s Memorial Chapel stands as a witness to 20th century theologian Paul Tillich’s believe that
…[M]an and nature belong together,
in their created glory,
in their tragedy,
and in their salvation.
– Paul Tillich, The Shaking of the Foundations
Here’s the sermon from the pulpit of Shepherd of the Hill Presbyterian Church in Chaska, Minnesota, August 5, 2012.
