Thursday Note - Feb. 28, 2019
As we prepare for Lent, we find Peter, James and John up on a mountain with Jesus who is transformed before their eyes. The mountain is not an unfamiliar place where God chooses to reveal God's self. Moses and heavenly beings have descended from mountaintops after an encounter with God. We may have had our own metaphorical mountaintop experiences with God or other encounters with God or may not have recognized the ones we have had. How do we know and how did we or did we not respond?
