Epiphany VI – Year B

2 Kings 2:1-12; Psalm 50:1-6; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6; Mark 9:2-9

As we approach Ash Wednesday, the story of the Transfiguration of Jesus gives us much to reflect on. The mysterious events from which the disciples sought certainty parallel our own anxiety with uncertainty. As we climb toward deeper knowledge of God we may become more aware of how much we don’t know. Like the disciples we are commanded to listen to Jesus, to lean on his teaching. By offering ourselves in service we gain new insight.
