Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Let us go in heart and mind with the three disciples and see with their eyes the transfigured Lord. See, here is God of God, Light of Light, who made all things. And Peter knew of the greatness of the occasion, so he proposed three tents, one for Moses, one for Elijah, and one for Jesus. Yet he was interrupted by the voice of God, and the one cloud, the one divine tent, and the admonition to listen to the One. He it is that we must here when we listen to Moses or Elijah, he is the One of whom all the Scriptures speak. And as the disciples fell down for fear and Jesus raised them up and said fear not, so does he for us, who fall and shall fall until we die; but he will raise us even from death, and he tells us also to leave off all of life's distractions and hear only him, who says Fear not. And here also we see what we ourselves shall become. For we receive him here, and so a guarantee of our own transfiguration. Sermon for Transfiguration Sunday.
