Big Idea: Those who encounter God are transfigured, enlightened, emblazoned. Early Christians were called "Illuminati" at their baptism because they now were to live with the light of Christ emanating from their lives. Jesus is remembered as the human whose interior garden was so vibrant that it shone out visibly. The story of the Transfiguration of Christ reminds us that, for sake of life, we are to let our lights shine because we have encountered and live in the reign of the loving and just God. What will you do with your own Enneagram type?

Big Idea: Renewed spiritual life depends upon seeing ourselves and others as part of the same living ecosystem. No plant can survive alone. At the same time, no one being can be all kinds of being or personality in and of herself. The complex of Enneagram personalities can be a way to understand our own foibles, fears and false selves in order to weed out what needs to be uprooted so that God can work the whole garden. Overview of the whole Enneagram and types ______.
