Down the Mountain

Luke 9:28-36

“This is my son, my beloved; listen to him!” When else have we heard that in the gospel messages? At the baptism of Jesus as a cloud like a dove came down and said, “This is my son, my beloved, listen to him.” How many times in the gospels are we told to listen? I’m sure somebody somewhere has counted it up but we’re always being told repeatedly to listen. Because so often we’re busy with our lives using our words to get our point across, we forget to listen. Listening for the Holy is hard work.
