Scripture   Matthew 17:1-9

Sermon   From Mountains and the Moon

All four gospels report that Jesus often went to a mountain to pray. Why? The reasons are likely similar to what draws people to the mountains today – but there’s a little more to it than that. And what on earth might this have to do with the Apollo 11 moon landing fifty years ago this Saturday?
