Transfiguration: Call to Worship

Here’s an opening call to worship for Transfiguration Sunday. It was written by Rev. Roddy Hamilton.

Call to Worship
(inspired by the events in Matthew 17:1-8,
Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36)

Behind all things
behind the grey surface
there is a glory escaping
born of heaven
and belongs to heaven

a light that welcomes
a more profound way of seeing things
that transfigures the world

that casts a spell of hope
that sees the glory in the cross
and life within death

it is a glory
that meets us here
on this mountain
where Jesus Christ
covered in the dust of the world
is caught up in the glory of heaven

welcome to the mountain
