Exodus 24:12-18; Matthew 17:1-9
“The transfiguration takes us into Lent—the transforming mystery of God’s intimacy with the world is what we take with us into the wilderness wanderings, into our deepest questions, into our shadows, our deserts, our how long, O Lord, moments.
Mystery and the mundane are not separate worlds, but the same world. Faith is the capacity to be there, to be here believing that to be true.”
