Sermon; The Transfiguration of Our Lord: "The Presence of God"
Date: March 3, 2019
Liturgical Day: The Transfiguration of Our Lord; Year C
Peter, transfixed by the Transfiguration, blurts out to Jesus that they ought to build some monuments, and mark the place where they experienced God’s presence. But Jesus knows better. God’s presence isn’t located on the top of a mountain where an extraordinary event once took place. God’s presence is wherever the faithful gather; wherever brokenness is found; wherever neighbor love is practiced; wherever the liberating word of good news is proclaimed; wherever bread is broken and wine is poured in the name of the Resurrected One. God’s presence is with us, and leads us into faithfulness.
