Transfiguration Call to Worship

Here’s a litany for the beginning of worship on Transfiguration Sunday (February 19, 2012).  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Entry into Worship
(Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-9, Luke 9:28-36, 2 Peter 1:19)

Today we are celebrating the holy light that illuminated Jesus.
We celebrate his transfiguration on the mountain.

Light of light: transfusing & transforming light.
Divine light flooding out the shadows.
Light of love, light of delight.
Light that turns doubters into followers.

It is the same God who at the beginning said:
“Let there be light,”
who has shone in our hearts with an understanding
of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The mightiest One of all, God the Eternal,
speaks and summons the whole earth
from the rising of the sun to its setting.

From God’s holy mountain, God’s light,
the perfection of beauty, shines out.
