Daily Lenten Thought February 21st

Transfiguration!  Mountain climbed in the company of friends.  A revelation takes place that confounds the friends, and roots them to the spot – “Lord”, they said “it’s wonderful for us to be here … let us build three tents …..” They, we are told, did not know what they were saying.

There are many moments we’d like to capture and put in an air-tight container so that they’d never change.  Life though, is for living not preserving and likewise life-giving moments.

What was seen and heard on the mountain top must be brought back to ground level so that it can be appropriately shared with those who were not there.

A picture may well tell a thousand words but is no substitute for the re-telling, one to another, of the Sacred Story.

What’s your line today?
