It was so lovely to be back in your company again on Sunday. I pray this finds all well with you after these storms that have passed through. I read that San Francisco has had nearly five inches of rain over the past seven days; our normal is about one-and one-half. What was a barren brown has become verdant.
Just as the mountains and hillsides have transitioned from brown to green, we move from Epiphany into Lent. Our bridge is The Transfiguration, when Jesus goes to the mountaintop with Peter, James, and John, and they witness his transfiguration – his change to a more beautiful spiritual state. We are given a preview of the realm of God to come.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday at 10 am on Balclutha, Zoom, or livestream. Invite a friend to shine with you before we enter into Lent and our penitential preparation for Easter.
