"Master, it is good for us to be
was a gorgeous day. I hadn’t skied in more than 14 years, nor had he.
We took a couple of test runs on the “bunny slope” just to get our ski
legs. The conditions were icy, so it took a lot of work, but we did all
right. We decided to take the chair lift to the top and try a more
ride up was crisp and clear and wonderful. I enjoyed the view and the
gleaming, white slopes beneath me. We exited the lift. I skied down a
bit to clear the lift and position myself toward the beginning of an
easy trail, to wait as Richard clipped his boots to his snowboard. He
was concentrating on what he was doing. I caught myself just looking at
him, remembering the little boy he had been, proud of the man he has
become, deeply thankful for this moment, this rare moment, when we
could both take time out from our otherwise busy lives and be together.
I wanted it to last. I wanted it to last forever.
“Master, it is good for us to be
here; let us make three dwellings; one for you, one for Moses and one
for Elijah” (Luke 9:33).
Peter’s desire to hang on to the moment, to memorialize the experience
on Transfiguration Mount. I’ll bet we all do. I’ll bet many of us have
preached that sermon. I have…I just did…It’s become a cliché. Still, it
does resonate with us and with our life experiences.
course, Peter’s situation is different. It’s a lot different. After
all, Peter, James and John were with Jesus, the Messiah, God’s Son.
