When Heaven Opens
Jesus' transfiguration in Luke 9 was like that. He takes a few friends on a prayer hike up a mountain, and -Shazaam! - he's changed. We might wonder what exactly happened, there, but the more important question might be, "Why?" Why was Jesus changed in this moment in such a radical way? And why didn't he stay that way? Why was it such a temporary state? That's what we'll look at in this week's message, along with what it says to our faith and our place in the world today. See you in worship!
