Last week I quoted William H. Lamar, pastor of the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., who said: “The church’s language is not spectator language. It does work, and it has work to do.” The story known as The Transfiguration (Luke 9:28-36) is a workhorse of a story.
In the history of ideas it worked as a quantum leap in human consciousness. It continues to work in the issues we encounter in our everyday lived experiences. This Sunday we will re-familiarize ourselves with this conscious-shifting story and examine it through a 21st century lens—exploring the “work” the Transfiguration has done and what it still has to do.
With ever-deepening gratitude and appreciation for all of you, Linda
