“…we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty…
we ourselves hear this voice come from heaven…”
-2 Peter 16b & 18a

Transfiguration Sunday is upon us as we move from Epiphany into Lent.  Jesus gathered with Peter, James, John, Moses and Elijah on the mountaintop and they were met with the voice of God proclaiming “this is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!”  When I think to all that transpired on that mountain, on that day, I feel it in my bones that this was the call that God wanted for us all to be able to see and hear.  How do we do that?  We surely were not on the mountain that day.  It’s a place of turning back to scripture, putting our faith in God’s Word, remembering that credibility comes not from human actions but from God’s action seen and heard yesterday, today and tomorrow, through the testimony, action, and faith of apostles and disciples gone before us and still with us today.  Where does the Holy Spirit enter in and point you to find God among us?  Where does God open your eyes and ears to the message of his Son, the Beloved?  When will we know that God is “well pleased” with us, what is the mountaintop  experience that will lead us to that acclamation and when is it an action of our daily lives that we hope to live in ways that we are met with God who is “well pleased”?
