2 Kings 2:1-12; Mark 9:2-9
Being a person of faith in this tumultuous world is about belief, not certainty. It is about mystery, not mastery. It is about trust, not control. Breathe that in for a minute—these are more than just words. These are dispositions toward human life that call on us to give ourselves to the world with such generosity, with such open hearts, with such confidence in God’s transforming ways that we are willing to let go of the things we thought we needed to stay afloat.
