Lent Reflection – Are my expectations keeping me from hearing Jesus?

This is the 12th day of Lent. I’m reading Brian Zahnd’s Lent devotional, The Unvarnished Jesus, then journaling on his reflection and the scripture’s he’s selected. I’ll be posting daily (or near-daily) meditations that emerge from this. The scripture for today is Matthew 17:1-9, the stunning event we call the Transfiguration.
