I often want to thank people for inviting me to visit them in the hospital or when a family member has died. For during these times of crises, when families invite me into those times of spiritual richness, I get to experience the presence of God. I often leave such experiences praising God, thinking that those few minutes were why I had become a pastor.
Peter had a more glorious meeting with God when Jesus had invited him to a mountain top where Jesus had a conversation with Moses and Elijah about his upcoming exodus which he would accomplish from a lonely hill top near Jerusalem.
Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here;
let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”
— Luke 9:33 (NRSV).
When have you experienced God in your life?
Bring your dinner to our discussion of Luke 9:28-36 at 6 pm on Wednesday, February 3rd. I will have more to say about this passage during worship on Sunday, February 7th.
