Riding the Wave
Pastor Rob Myallis

February 23, 2020: Transfiguration Sunday

I love riding waves!!  I find myself saying, “This is really good.  And I want it to keep going!”

There were essentially the words of Peter when he had a “mountaintop expierence” with Jesus on the mount of transfiguration.  He is in awe; all he can say is that it is good and he wants it to last.

But it doesn’t.  The good and awesome “God moments” — “mountaintop experiences” — fade away.  As disciples, we are called to live off of the mountaintop.

So what do we make of God’s choice to give us mountaintop moments, even if they don’t last?  For as Christians, we are about to enter Lent, definitely a time of living off the mountain top!

A reflection on Matthew 17, not just the transfiguration, but the whole chapter!
