What goes up, must come down…that’s how the old saying goes. And that holds true in the Gospel of Mark. The first part of the Gospel leads up to this mountaintop moment, what we’ve come to know as the transfiguration of Jesus. It’s a dazzling moment, full of light, awe, wonder and glory. But as Jesus and the disciples descend from the mountain, everything seems to literally and figuratively go downhill. How did that mountaintop moment change or equip Jesus and the disciples for what was ahead as Jesus’ path takes a decisive turn toward Jerusalem and the cross? How do moments of light, awe, wonder and glory change and equip us for the ups and downs of life’s journey?
