The Transfiguration of Our Lord – February 15, 2015
Mass at 11:00 AM. Readings: 2 Kings 2:1-12; Psalm 50; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6; Mark 2-9. Pastor George Detweiler will preside and preach.
The Sundays after Epiphany began with Jesus’ baptism and end with three disciples’ vision of his transfiguration. In Mark’s story of Jesus’ baptism, apparently only Jesus sees the Spirit descending and hears the words from heaven. But now Jesus’ three closest friends hear the same words naming him God’s beloved son. As believers, Paul writes, we are enabled to see the God-light in Jesus’ face, because the same God who created light in the first place has shone in our hearts to give us that vision. The light of God’s glory in Jesus has enlightened us through baptism and shines in us also for others to see.
