Homily / Spend more time reading the scriptures. Begin with the Gospels! That is the centre for everything in scripture.
Here are 3 things from the story of the transfiguration that apply to us today:
- There are a lot of ordinary ways we can experience and encounter God. Sometimes, it is good to step out of the ordinary, to step out of routine.
- We should encounter God in the ordinary. But, every once and a while, it is good to step out of the ordinary to encounter God in different ways.
- If we step out of routine, if we set aside time to be with God on the mountatin, God will do whatever he can to come near. to give us an experience of himself. He desires that we know him personally.
- This experience is also meant to be temporary. Eventually you need to take what you experience and go back down the mountain.
Homily begins at 19:40.
