Transfiguration Sunday

What a conflicted day on the church calendar! It climaxes the season of Epiphany that celebrates the full glorious manifestation of the divine in Creation and in the coming of the Christ. It heralds the imminent season of Lent, the journey of penitence to the Cross. In a greater, more ancient context it celebrates the beginning of the great hundred-day journey from the mysterious mountaintop experience where befuddled disciples are overwhelmed with a shining glimpse of the full nature of Christ to the full blast of confident birthing of the global community of faith at Pentecost. A climactic day indeed. May these texts guide us!

Wisdom too precious
To be shared with unready hearts
Hidden until ripe.

Keep eyes fixed on the compass
And map steady course

In Christ is freedom 
The veil that conceals has dropped
Spirit reveals all

Luke 9:28-36, (37-43a)

At top of mountain
The future of all shines bright
Journey waits its end.

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.
