“My sins like a mountain reached to the skies, black as sack cloth of hair and the heavens was as brass against my prayers ... in this moment of despair the cloud bursted, the heavens was clear, and the mountain was gone. My spirit was light, my heart was filled with love for God and all mankind. And the lightning, which was a moment ago the messenger of death, was now the messenger of peace, joy, and consolation. And I rose from my knees, ran down stairs, opened the door to let the lightning in the house, for it was like sheets of glory to my soul.”
Rebecca Jackson, U.S. visionary, Shaker elder
