The journey with Jesus

February 10th, 2021

Carla Pratt Keyes, the pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, begins this week's sermon a bit differently than most by inviting us to join her in a guided meditation. In today’s passage from Mark 8:27-9:9, Keyes invites us to think about Jesus’ journey as well. On Transfiguration Sunday, Jesus goes up the mountain. Jesus is human, but, at this moment, “it’s clear: he has access to a power from God.” Jesus brings this power down the mountain with him into the valley of his life and ours. Thanks be to God!

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes or for individual use.
