Transfiguration and the valley
The second story is a father with a self destructive demon possessed boy. The disciples are in the valley, below the mountain, and can not help the boy. Jesus does not stay on the mountain, there is work to do in the valley. Jesus goes down the mountain into the valley and heals the boy.
Both stories are individual stories but they are most defiantly connected. We cannot seperate the mountain top experience and the presence of God from the valley experience and helping those who need help.
We must do both. We must spend time on the mountain of God through prayer, worship, fasting, and the church, then we must go to the valley and be God's hands extended.
