An extraordinary glimpse into a new reality

Morning: Psalm 102; Exodus 2:1-22; I Corinthians 12:27-13:3

Sometimes ordinary moments turn into extraordinary ones.  If sceptical bullies do not overwhelm us, we may accept events like the transfiguration of Jesus as inexplicable glimpses into the way things are. Now, nobody inventing this story could have invented the bumbling and comic response of Peter … it rings true.  And here, on the mountain, Jesus offers his closest followers a glimpse of the new cosmos that is coming; they now see Jesus as the one who will usher it in.  And they hear the voice from the cloud that says: “Listen to him!” – this extraordinary man.  Wouldn’t you listen?
