Year C - Epiphany5/Transfiguration Sunday or Guiding Gift4/Mountain Top to Valley
February 7, 2016
Greatness is measured by the ability to make others quake in their boots?
So have we measured history from one war to the next, each temblor larger than the last.
Justice is something to execute?
Forgiveness is something to follow with vengeance for wrongdoing?
So have we measured religion from one reformer to the next schismatic.
When the pillar of cloud moves on, what is left but decrees and statutes?
When a mountain is deemed holy, how can anything in its view be good in its place?
When a Psalm is so extravagant in praise, how do we return to everyday life?
So have we littered our lives with a revelation here and “should” there.
