Fear and terror are everywhere in this text! In fact, it was such a terrifying experience that it was not shared with anyone for some time. What influence might this have on our sharing of “God moments” outside (or even inside) our faith community in this day and time? I think it may present a challenge for us to share what our encounters with God look like regardless or even ESPECIALLY, those terrifying ones. And may there also be some implications here for how we might HEAR such stories?
