Up on the mountain with Jesus, the three disciples witnessed quite a spectacle. As the saying goes, “Well, that’s not something you see every day.” Excited and impulsive, they they thought they just had to do something. That is where God steps in. We are told that as they are talking and making plans--positively knowing what God wants them to do—suddenly a bright cloud surrounds them. It might have been like the fog that envelops us on the road with our high-beam lights on. It is a beautiful thing, but also scary. They can’t see anything, and that probably heightens their sense of hearing. God is as direct as he is clear: “Listen to Him, My Son!” God’s word is not ink on a page; the Word is living and giving. We hear God through the love he gives us (past, present, and future tense) in Jesus Christ.
SUNDAY MORNING ROLL-OUT!
St. Mary's will serve a hot breakfast from 8:30-9:45 EVERY SUNDAY. Rev. Bill will take the floor from 9:10 to 9:50 during breakfast and offer a lesson and reflection on the inexhaustible subject of being “Unabashedly Episcopalian.”
Fellowship, breaking bread, and bringing the congregation from both the first and second service together. Come whenever breakfast is being served, at whatever time suits your schedule.
It will be informal, casual, participatory, and fun! You don’t have to follow a syllabus be prepared. You don’t have to be “on time” either. Come when you can. Just eat good food and spend some fun time with your fellow parishioners!
They spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together. Acts 2:42
