GOING UP THE MOUNTAIN AND GOING DOWN
2/7/2016 by Rev. Allison Smith
The season of Lent began on February 7, 2016???Transfiguration Sunday. ?Rev. Allison Smith shared a meditation “Going Up the Mountain and Going Down”. ?Unfortunately our attempt to record the service produced a silent movie, so no audio file is available. ?In its place, Allison offers the following thoughts to complement the scripture readings?from 2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2 and Luke 9:28-36.
Albert Einstein?s words help me think about the gospel story and my own experience. Einstein once said, ?The way I see it is you have two ways to live your life: the one as if no miracles exist and the other as though everything is a miracle.?
Alan Culpepper?s words are so so wise here, “Faithfulness is not achieved by freezing a moment;? he says, ?instead, faithfulness follows God in trust toward the future.”
