Transfiguration Sunday February 14, 2010

This Sunday is Transfiguration Sunday in the church year. This is the last Sunday in the season of Epiphany, and therefore the last Sunday before Lent--which begins with Ash Wednesday (February 17). The Scripture for this Sunday is Luke 9.28-43. The worship bulletin is here. With the conclusion of Transfiguration Sunday, the work of Epiphany is over: Jesus is presented as the Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God. And the Transfiguration story finishes this. Jesus is shown in his heavenly glory and is elevated above Moses and Elijah--the Law and the Prophets.
And the message of the Transfiguration is a fitting introduction to Lent. As we will see this Sunday.
Join us for worship at 9:30 or 11
