Transfiguration – 2020

Exodus 24:12-18; Psalm 2; 2 Peter 1:16-21; Matthew 17:1-9

Bishop Terry Dance

The Transfiguration gives a glimpse of God’s glory. As theology, it affirms Jesus as a deliverer,a great leader who brings people the people of Israel into a deeper relationship with God. On a pastoral level, it affirms Jesus as the Son of God and marks a turning point in his relationship with his disciples, beginning a time of preparation for understanding and dealing with the service and sacrifice that are yet to come.

Anthem: O Nata Lux E. Joliffe

O Light born of Light, Jesus, Redeemer of the World,
with loving kindness, deign to receive supplicant praise and prayer
Thou who once deigned to be clothed in flesh for the sake of the lost,
grant us to be members of Thy blessed body.
