Mark 9:2-10
2 Kings 2;1-14;
2 Cor 4;3-6

Mountains as spiritual places experienced by Moses at Sinai, Elijah at 1 Kings 19:11

What are our own reference points?

Key: This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him

 

The disciples want to build dwellings –

dwellings/churches give stability, permanence, connection –

but down side – insular, static, maintenance burden – what are we to do? – listen to Jesus

Coming down from the mountaintop in amongst the crowd becomes involved in  conflicts of real life.

 

The mountain is place to dream…….. imagine ………. inspire  …….listen ……..

Where life can be transfigured, transformed

What is the Vision for our churches – each person; community, building: – what have we been created to be? what can we imagine? how will we inspire? 

Amongst all the voices we must listen to Jesus for “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him”  Around the Lord’s Table we come to a  place of storytelling, meeting, fellowship. Let us listen and dream.
