This Sunday is the Transfiguration! You know, when Jesus is “transfigured"! When he shines all bright and glowy on the top of a mountain! And the disciples have a vision! It’s the last Sunday before Lent begins, so we get this attention-grabbing story of Jesus to send us into the wilderness with a bang. Now, you might be thinking: “Jesus glows on the top of a mountain?! Come on. Do you think that really happened?!” Well, I don’t know. I wasn’t there. Mostly I agree with Marcus Borg who wrote, “The Bible is true, and some of it actually happened.” Let’s explore the meaning of this story, and to what it invites us, and how it resonates with our own religious experience.
See you on Sunday!
