A mountain edge

Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them,
and his clothes became dazzling white,
such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,
and they were conversing with Jesus.
Then Peter spoke to Jesus,
“Rabbi, it is good that we are here!”

                                                       Mark 9: 2-5


Recall a moment of great joy. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a place where time stood still. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a shaft of understanding, a knowing that was like a shaft of light. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a hurtful occasion, when you were able to forgive. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a moment when peace slipped surprisingly into your spirit, and stayed for a while. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a smell or a sound that takes you back to another time and place. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall an answered prayer. “Lord, it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a time when you recognised that you were valued. “Lord it is wonderful to be here.”

Recall a moment when, like Moses, you heard God say, “Take off your shoes, for this is a holy place. And you replied,  “Lord it is wonderful to be here.”

  1. (Recall a moment when) …. This is a moment when Words from the Edge hit the spot. “Lord thank you, thank you, thank you”.
