IMHO, Holy Ground is anywhere God is present.

I remember being on a medical mission trip to Mexico and feeling God's presence in the middle of a garbage dump.


That cannot be, or at least it doesn't seem to conform to the scriptural references I cited. In both of those two cases, the standee was asked to remove their sandals. I pray that, if you were walking around the garbage dump barefooted, you were wise enough to have gotten your tetanus shot recently updated! *s*

Seriously, I'm not sure that "being in the presence of God" (which can certainly happen everywhere and anywhere) is the same concept of what happened in the Genesis and Joshua examples. It wasn't just that God was present, He makes it clear that the ground is holy. What can that mean, and how/where does it occur?

Your brother in Christ,
Urban
