Sherpas are an ethnic people group in Nepal who are often hired by mountaineers to help with the ascent of various mountains including Mount Everest. At the end of last week, there was a terrible avalanche in Nepal at the base of Mt Everest & 16 sherpas were killed. Sherpas are amazing people & are often the unsung heroes of the Himalays (to quote a famous sherpa). Sherpas do lots of work & help people achieve really amazing & super-human feats. They’ve been doing this for many decades but are often overlooked or even unheard of.
In some ways, the sherpas kind of remind me of the Holy Spirit, our Helper Whom Jesus said would never leave us & Who helps us, even when we don’t know it. Perhaps it might be a good idea to take a minute now to thank the Helper for being our constant guide & help in the journey of our life. Maybe the Holy Spirit is kind of like our supernatural sherpa ,)
