03-02-14: A World Unmade, Remade

Scripture Reading: Exodus 24:12-18; Matthew 17:1-9

God tells Moses to go up the mountain and wait-wait for instruction, wait for a taste of God's awesome power, wait for the next big experience of the holy. As people of faith, we spend a lot of time waiting. And no matter how faithfully we wait, it seems that we are never quite ready when the moment of revelation and mystery occurs. Jesus' disciples discovered that on the mountaintop when Christ was transfigured before them. Yes, Transfiguration Sunday is about God's light and power, but it is also about waiting, and being ready when God's light shines upon us to show the world as it truly is. See you Sunday. Yours on the journey, B. J. Beu
