B12: Transfiguration Sunday, Year B

MaryAnn McKibben Dana

MaryAnn McKibben Dana, popular preacher, speaker, writer, and retreat leader, preaches a sermon from Mark 9:2-9 called, “When You Don’t Know What to Do.” She begins with a quote: “When a system doesn’t know what to do, it does what it knows.” That’s what Peter did on the Mount of Transfiguration. He offered to build a tabernacle, as his ancestors had in the wilderness years before. But God says, “This is my Son. Listen!” Is that the best thing to do when you don’t know what to do? Listen?
