Call to Worship: Transfiguration Sunday


Here’s a responsive call to worship for Transfiguration Sunday (February 19, 2012). It was written by Katherine Hawker for the Evangelical United Church of Christ.

Transfiguration Sunday Call to Worship
(Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-9, Luke 9:28-36)

We have seen the light of God;
     on high mountains of celebration
     and in the ecstasy of a lover's embrace.
We have seen the light of God;
     through the bitter scorn of betrayal
     and the searing chasm of grief.
We have seen the light of God;
     with eyes that have been shaded,
     with eyes that have been opened,
     with eyes that have been blinded.
We have seen the light of God.
