St. Cyprian’s presents Transformed by the light. Join us at 10:10 a.m. Sunday in the Sanctuary as we hear stories of mountain top transformation while we site atop the hill at the intersection of Turk & Lyon and hear that Transfiguration is Not Just For Jesus Anymore. Which runs against the literalist view of scripture that has Jesus hanging out with two dead prophets several hundred feet above the mountain top. Yeah I know that is what artists painted in the middle ages. But we’re not living in the Middle Ages any more – are we? We’re all called to spiritual transfiguration – it is just we usually don’t make time to notice.
Prayer for the day:
Holy God, mighty and immortal,
you are beyond our knowing,
yet we see your glory in the face of Jesus Christ,
whose compassion illumines the world.
Transform us into the likeness of the love of Christ,
who renewed our humanity so that we may share in his divinity,
the same Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who live and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
