Sunday, Feb. 23 – Just Listen!

by Trina Kleist

God says: “Listen to Jesus!” To listen — that’s the hard part! Our stories today tell about exciting images of God. One describes God’s presence as “a devouring fire.” Another story describes “a bright cloud.” People’s faces shine “like the sun.” The light is so bright that it transfigures Jesus, changes his appearance.
