Sunday’s Reflection: In this scene, Jesus is talking with Elijah and Moses. In this moment of God’s glory revealed in the Transfiguration of Christ Jesus, as the disciples stood stunned and as Jesus spoke with Moses and Elijah, there is silence.
Peter, James, and John had been with Jesus for some time now and witnessed his many works, like walking on water. Yet, at the Transfiguration, they were still shocked to see Jesus’ divinity revealed in glory. Silence may unsettle us. And, like Peter, we may start talking simply to fill the air because we are uncomfortable in silence. Still, even in confusion and fear and trembling and silence, light shines and God speaks. We may not fully comprehend why we are there at that moment, why we have the privilege to be on the mountaintop to witness a revelation, but as disciples, we may be called simply to listen.
Today, we listen to so many voices, all of which seem wise and attractive—columnists, commentators, political analysts, preachers, celebrities and more. They promise us health, wealth, and happiness, but seldom live up to their promises and sometimes lead people toward devastation. Is there any trustworthy voice amidst the chaos in life? The voice from the cloud says that we can always trust Jesus—”Listen to him!” (Resources are from, Sermon that works)
