No I am not preaching this Sunday, I'm not even in my church this Sunday; better than that I'm at a friend's church becoming a godmother again on Sunday. I am blessed.
But I've just come from a ministry lunch where everyone was discussing this weeks lectionary gospel: Matthew 17:1-9 the transfiguration.
I love this piece, love the theme and the whole message, it speaks to me. And now in ministry the specific section which speaks to me is Jesus saying to his disciples "get up and do not be afraid". Well as readers of the blog will know, I have a 'special' relationship with fear! And so today and this Sunday I am reminded, right now, I need not be afraid.
