Sunday's scriptures illuminate (literally) the experience of spiritual connection with the divine in Moses' glowing face and Jesus' brilliant robes.
These passages also portray the struggle of those around them to cope with the new spirituality that is shining forth. For every "mountaintop," there can also be the crunch of everyday reality - the valley. Things are not the same any longer and neither are people, relationships, and most other "normal" things. Negotiating the old landscape within a new reality is a trial itself. The dislocation from the old and re-location within a new spirituality is quite a disruption.
Of course, that's the idea. The new spirituality is meant to empower us in new ways. Learn more as this gets discussed in the sermon video below (and note the downloads below the video panel).
