(Photo courtesy of Joe Lencioni)Transfiguration Lyrics: When he took the three disciples to the mountainside to pray,His countenance was modified, his clothing was aflame.Two men appeared: Moses and Elijah came; they were at his side.The prophecy, the legislation spoke of whenever he would die.Then there came a word of what he should accomplish on the day.Then Peter spoke, to make of them a

Luther -- Quick, costly obedience

Bruce Almighty -- Signs from God


Bruce Almighty illustrates the way that God is ever-present, giving us all kinds of "signs" (literal and otherwise) that clue us in to what's going on around us.
