I first visited the village at Pleasant Hill as a boy. I've gone back many times during the passing years and it has become a very special place for me. If you are new to the village, you need to tour, gather all the info you can, and ask questions. Then you need to visit again and walk and listen and look at what is around you. There is a peace and serenity here that can't be manufactured. The believers intended for this village to be heaven on earth until they reached heaven. This shouldn't be a tourist destination, but an experience. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't hesitate to sit in the meeting house and listen. You don't have to spend a lot of money here. Spend time. My wife and I became "Friends of Pleasant Hill" for only $75, and we plan on giving more. The people that work here have a passion for their vocation that is isn't found many places. They are knowledgeable of the footsteps that they walk in and the space that they occupy. There is a deep respect for the people that worked and worshiped here. Come to Pleasant Hill, turn off the cell phone, don't look a the watch, and listen to the silence.
