Our text today is Luke 9:28-43.

This is the prototypical mountain top experience. The archetype, if you will.

Last night while filtering through Facebook messages, I came across an invitation to a F.E.A.S.T from Allan Martin. Allan is co-founder of the GODencounters movement currently sweeping across the young adult sector of the church. Together with eight other contributors (like Matthew Gamble, Zane Yi, Carolyn Macomber and Chris Bullock), Allan authors the Ignition young adult ministry blog.
