Mark 9: 2-9
This is the word of the Lord, thanks be to God.
Some things that happen are very out of the ordinary!
In our bible story today, we heard that Jesus went for a walk up a mountain with
three of his friends - Peter, James and John. And to begin with, it was a nice,
But when they got to the top, they were right in the middle of God doing
something special. Suddenly all kinds of strange and wonderful things began to
happen. A dazzling light seemed to make Jesus’ face and clothes start shining!
Two wise old men from long, long ago appeared and talked with Jesus...
A big cloud came down around them all. And then God spoke loud and clear,
saying, ‘Jesus is my Son and I love him very much!’
We can only imagine what Peter, James and John must have thought about what
was happening. What do you think?
Maybe they thought, ‘How special. How scary. What an amazing sight!’
