STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: Today we remember the Transfiguration. In today‟s Gospel, Peter says to Jesus that, „it is good for us to be here”. Do you ever wonder why there were not more disciples on the mountain that day? Could it be that they were too busy! Stewardship means that we are accountable for the use of all our gifts, including the gift of each day, our time. Once we spend our time we cannot get it back. How do you steward your time? Peter, James and John took the time to be with Jesus and were rewarded. It was good for them to be there!
