Among other things, this sermon focuses on the ways in which travel serves as a metaphor for our lives of faith, as "...the presence of Jesus brings comfort" yet the "...path of Jesus brings discomfort". With a biblical focus on the Transfiguration of Jesus narrative found in Luke 9:28-43, this message reflects upon recent travels in South Africa and considers the ways in which Jesus pushes us outside of our "comfort zones".
