This Week’s From the Rector

Welcome to Transfiguration Sunday. The Transfiguration is one of the most powerful stories told in the Gospels. It’s full of much more that it seems at first reading. It’s interesting to me how much art and poetry whirl around this subject. I love that Peter, good old Peter, speaks up and thinks it will be just great to stay there! Peter was very devout, but he was the kind of guy who spoke and acted first out of enthusiasm without thinking. I know a guy just like that! You’ll notice a copy of the painting “The Transfiguration” by Raphael in your bulletin. There are many, many classes and discussions about his famous painting. If you’ll notice, it’s in two parts, unusual at the time. Then we have printed the poem of The Old Violin, or “The Master’s Touch” which points out more about The Transfiguration. 

Blessings to you this week. May God hold you in the palm of His hand always.
