  1. I am listening to your podcast today and thinking about a memorial service that I am officiating tomorrow morning. The scripture I was requested to use in honor of the deceased is from Matthew 25:21 “Well done, good and faithful servant…” However, the rest of that parable doesn’t quite fit- so I’ve been looking for other options. Trying to find my inspiration doesn’t come easily, so I decided to take a walk to clear my head.

    While I was walking, a Contemporary Christian song called “Well Done” by The Afters came to mind. There is a line in that song that asks “What will it be like when I come into your glory standing in the presence of a love so beautiful?”

    Returning from the walk, I sat down to your podcast. This meditation helped me remember that the Transfiguration gave Peter, James, and John a momentary glimpse of that glory- so awesome that it made the three men fall on their faces in worship and fear. We can infer through this and other scriptures about the last day that God’s glory will be far more awesome and glorious than we can even imagine. I think I am now “unstuck” or at least less stuck. Thank you for the work you do in offering this every week!
