Call to Worship: Transfiguration


Here’s a thoughtful call to worship for Transfiguration Sunday. It was written by Joanna Harader, and posted on Spacious Faith (see link below).

Transfiguration Call to Worship
(inspired by Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-9,
Luke 9:28-36, 2 Peter 1:16-18)

The mountain top
the shining face
the glowing clothes
the voice of God speaking from the cloud
the commandments etched in stone

Sometimes God shows up
in ways we cannot deny
in a place we can go
a light we can see
a voice we can hear
a stone we can touch

Sometimes

Sometimes
there is the veil
the overshadowing, terrifying cloud
the questions
the appearing and disappearing
the excitement
the wondering
the silence

Sometimes God shows up
in ways we cannot deny.

Always God shows up
somehow.

So we have shown up
here, now
May God give us eyes to see.
