Faith, Hope and Charity
In Snowdonia (North Wales) the cold clear waters of Llyn Idwal sit in a spectacular ice carved hollow known as Cwm Idwal. The lake reflects the steep and brooding cliffs, Clogwyn y Geifr (the Cliff of the Goat) and its rift Twll Du (the Black Hole), which surround it. Twell Du which is better known as the Devil’s Kitchen is named after the plume of cloud that rises from the dark gash.
In this spectacular mountain landscape is Idwal slab. Falling down the steep and craggy mountainside Idwal Slab is a popular climbers playground. The smooth slab can be ascended by three 130m climbs known as Faith, Hope and Charity. Charity is an old English word now translated as love.
Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Threesixteen is now planning a Bible study entitled Faith, Hope and Charity (love) which will be delivered while making an ascent of these classic rock climbs.
