This Sunday – The Last Sunday after the Epiphany

This Sunday

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.
–Matthew 17.1-3

  • Can you remember a particular story you were told as a child that is still important to you? How often do you think about it? Why is it a story that stays with you?
  • What about your life would you change today if you could?  Why would you make that change?
  • Do you imagine yourself connected to the story of God, unfolding today as it did long ago?
  • When you think about Jesus, what reveals itself to you?

This is the last Sunday in the season of Epiphany, Transfiguration Sunday.  It’s the day we remember Jesus going to a high mountain where he meets Moses and Elijah, and his face and clothes become dazzling white.  But why?  What’s that supposed to mean?  If you’ve always been interested in this story, or if you’ve never really thought about it, come join us at Trinity Commons Sunday night at 6 pm for Eucharist.  Then plan to stay for a delicious dinner thanks to our friends in EfM from St. Andrew’s (Gerald Wildes and Phyllis Bennington).  It’s sure to be a great night; I hope you can be there too.

–Thomas
