The Feast of the Transfiguration gave us a second opportunity this year (the first being the Last Sunday of Epiphany) to consider our relationship with the revealed God in Christ. The stories from scripture told an esoteric story of the Transfiguration, Peter’s recounting of the day, and the image of Moses’ shining face. The revelation of God is awesome and terrifying but once we share the personal side of the meeting with God the door is opened for all to see God as welcoming and inviting.
