MOUNT HERMON FYI:
Mount Hermon is the highest elevation in Israel and lies on the border of Lebanon and Syria near Caesarea Philippi. Due to its location and height, it is heavily patrolled by troops and is called "The Eyes of the Nation."
Many historians believe Mount Hermon to be where the disciples saw Moses & Elijah with the transfigured Jesus in his gleaming, white robe. Even though sur-rounded by dessert, Mount Hermon is covered in its own glistening, white
robe of snow most of the year. When the snow melts, the water flows down the mountain side in three streams that feed into the Jordan river. The
three streams that flowed to Jordan could metaphorically represent Jesus, Moses and Elijah.

Bishop Richard Allen
Founder of the A.M.E. Church
It was a sermon preached by Richard Allen titled, "Thou are weighed in the balance and found wanting," that convinced his slave owner to convert to Methodism and later to come to the conclusion that slavery was wrong.
Still, Richard Allen had to purchase his freedom for $2,000 dollars in 1783 (PBS.org). On slave master Stockley Sturgis' plantation, slaves did not have a last name, so our church founder Bishop Richard Allen was known simply as Negro Richard before freedom.
