Dear Friend,

Transfigured by light, Jesus was changed. All those who witness God’s light will be changed.
Climb to the mountaintop to see God and to see yourself bathed in God’s holy light. Climb to be changed.
God calls Moses to come up the mountain to receive God’s commands, and he obeys and spends 40 days and nights with God on the mountain.
Peter affirms the reliability of his teaching, and that of the other apostles, reminding his readers of his experience with Jesus on the mountain, and confirming his trust in the message of the prophets.

Jesus takes Peter, James and John up a mountain, where he is transfigured and talks to Moses and Elijah who appear with him. God proclaims Jesus to be God’s beloved son, and afterward, Jesus instructs the disciples not to tell anyone what they have seen until after the resurrection.
Prayer
Holy God, we extol and honor you for who you are.
We praise you for your faithfulness and for your tender mercies that are renewed every morning.
We exalt you, Sovereign One, for every blessing of yesterday, the gift of this day, and the promises of our tomorrows.
Grant us an enduring faith as we strive against oppression and despair. Endow us with contagious joy that uplifts the downtrodden and inspires hope in you.
Increase in us
the faith and courage of the prophets,
the love of Jesus, and
the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.
In your majestic name we pray, Amen.
