Making Sense of Life
Transfiguration Sunday (February 11, 2024)
After the super bowl tonight, reporters will ask the players “How does it feel to win the Super Bowl?” Chances are, none of them will say anything remotely coherent. The event is too overwhelming for them.
Today, we remember the Transfiguration of our Lord (Mark 9:2-10), certainly an overwhelming event for the disciples. They don’t know what to say; they are in awe of the goodness but also terrified of its implications.
In life, how to we make sense of these events in life that we know are good, but also cause us to tremble, because we don’t quite know what they mean for our life?
The picture is from the best Super Bowl ever, in which the Philadelphia Eagles won.
