Friday Greetings - February 12

The old “Calvin and Hobbs” cartoon was a fixture in my growing up. I found his humor insightful and the drawings enjoyable. You may remember that Calvin had a box labeled “transmogrifier”. It turns out, transmogrify is a real word meaning to change into something monstrous. It’s not a word we use everyday, nor I confess is transfiguration. It too means to change, but to change into something beautiful. Every year, on this last Sunday before Lent, we read the stories of Jesus being “transfigured” before the disciples. Strange and wonderful stories that somehow feel disconnected from the rest of the gospel, and yet not. Join us this Sunday as we consider what it means for us to see Jesus transfigured, be told to listen, and then begin the journey to the cross. You are invited to worship in person or virtually at 8:30, 9:30 or 11:00.
