I had a difficult time setline on a passage to write about this morning. The Psalms readings were great (of course), and there were so many good stories in Mark 7-9. I settled on Mark 9:2-13, the Transfiguration of Jesus, because, well, it’s about Jesus. Obviously, all of the gospels are about Jesus, but if I’d taken up, for example, Mark 3:34ff I would have ended up writing more about the cost of discipleship than Jesus.

Before and After

Dates don’t always carry the historical weight we think they will in the moment. Franklin Roosevelt’s condemnation of December 7 to the annals of infamy fades a bit with each passing year. There will come a time when the mention of the date September 11 will not carry a corresponding memory, an implicit sadness.

Missed Opportunities

“Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. And a servant girl came up to him and said, You also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied it before them all, saying, I do not know what you mean.”  Matthew 26:69, 70.

The Gates of Hell

During times of crisis, doubt, spiritual deserts, or dark nights of the soul, it is essential to remember who God is. We could make a whole series of posts about God’s attributes, but one that I return to and meditate on frequently is God’s faithfulness. God is unwaveringly true to himself and unfalteringly true to his word. He keeps his promise, as the author of Hebrews reminds us, “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”

Peace in the Storm

”And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the wind and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” Matthew 8:24-27

My Father’s World

“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”  Matthew 6:26.

In the Garden

We are in the season of Lent with Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter fast approaching. It is very odd to be planning worship services during this season with the painful knowledge that none of you will be here together. In an unusual and unexpected way it is a season of lament. Painful as our circumstances are it has created an acute awareness of Lent. The Gospel reading for today is the account of Jesus’s death and burial as recorded in John 19. I believe this is the most poignant story in all of Scripture. The one who made the universe, this earth and the humanity that inhabits the earth, the second person of the Trinity, Son of God – that one is crucified by human beings who owe their very existence to the one hanging on the cross. Stunning that God would allow this to happen! The words that follow are not mine. Instead they come from a great saint in the church. His name was Bonaventure. I offer you his reflection on the Garden of Gethsemane, the trial of Jesus, his crucifixion and burial. His devotional reflection on the passion of Christ touched me deeply. I hope his words will do the same for you.
