◊ Matthew 17:1-9
◊ Sermon – Shine!
◊ Today, on this last Sunday before the beginning of the season of Lent, we celebrate the transfiguration. We exult in God’s exaltation of Jesus and in anticipation of our own transformation now and in the age to come. That hope, that vision, drives us down from the mountain into the valleys to be a healing and formative presence for all who seek God’s salvation with us in the weeks of Lent.
