CHRIST LEADS US DOWN THE MOUNTAIN

This past Sunday is a hinge for us. With this week, we move from Epiphany into Lent -- going literally from the mountaintop into the desert.


The mountaintop is much more comfortable and the pull to stay there is incredible. But the desert is where Christ leads us. Christ leads us there because that’s where so many of our sisters and brothers whom He loves live. Christ leads us there because our common destiny is as partners in this mission of God.


Christ leads us down the mountain and into the desert, because the true transfiguration, the true shining forth of God in all God’s glory happens when we follow Him there together.


-- Michael D. Kinman
