The third in our "Sacred Ground" series looks at praying in cells, or small groups of Christians gathered to support and nurture each other.

Passage: Luke 9:28-36
Duration: 18 mins 49 secs
Moses had to veil his face after he had seen the glory of the Lord, for the Israelites were fearful when they saw how radiant he was. Jesus' disciples were also afraid when they saw Jesus transfigured, or unveiled. Yet Jesus' whole incarnation is about giving God a face to which we can relate. It is about removing the veil, and allowing mutual revelation and intimacy to grow. [ Organ/Choir - Epiphany 5 ]

Third, an open heaven with the Spirit descending means new opportunities to help advance God's kingdom. [ Organ - Epiphany 1 ]
