Grief and Being Present
Join us this Sunday in worship. We celebrate the transfiguration of Jesus as we ascend the mountain with Peter, James, and John to witness Jesus the Christ revealed in dazzling glory. The disciples may have other mountain treks on their minds, as mountaintop experiences are marked with significance, change, and greater understandings of the one named “I Am.” This week we conclude our worship series on “Grief and Being Present to the Process in Hope.” As we are present to our past and current grief, we also embrace the grace of transfiguration that offers us eyes and hearts to see the divine presence within the world and within ourselves. As we seek to be reflections of divine love and light, we light individual candles of prayer that will join in a collective light that is a witness to the potential of resurrection. If you worship with us online, please bring a candle to your worship space. Let us experience this dazzling light and trust that God can transfigure us.
