Matt Rawle: Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey Transfiguration

Luke 9:28-36

Transfiguration Sunday - Year A

February 26, 2017

The Rev. Matt Rawle (UMC)

 

Today is the concluding Sunday for the season of Epiphany, a season in which we marvel at God's magnificence being revealed through Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Christian year begins with a poignant waiting for the Christ child; and when the child is born, our first response is to stand in awe of God's amazing and abundant love for us and for all of creation. Soon we will do the difficult work of looking at our own soul, discovering what we need to give up or maybe what we need to take on in order to prepare ourselves for Christ's sacrifice and resurrection during the season of Lent and Easter. But today on Transfiguration Sunday, we simply stand in awe of God being God.

ON Scripture: A God of Second Chances (2 Peter 1:16-21) By Melissa Browning

ON Scripture: The Bible

The stories of wicked kings are not hard to find when we turn to scripture. After the Exodus, God creates a covenant with the people to rule as king from above. Moses went up to the mountain to receive God’s law and to establish God’s priestly kingdom with Israel. But it turned out that the people of Israel were not the best followers.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton: “It's Not What We Do”

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton (ELCA)

At the end of the sixth chapter of the Gospel according to John, many disciples who had been following Jesus left him. Looking at the 12, Jesus asked, “'Will you also go away?' Simon Peter answered, 'Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life' (John 6:66-68). It was a kind of crisis at the beginning of the Jesus movement.

ON Scripture: Are We Safer Now? Security and Mercy in God’s Law (Leviticus 19:1-2, 9-18) By Johnny Ramirez-Johnson

ON Scripture: The Bible

How would you feel today if you learned that your neighbor is a refugee from Syria? The concerns about security (i.e. the measurements we take to arrive at a place of safety) have become central to our daily life; we (all Americans) have banned Syrian refugees from entering the USA. The Statue of Liberty has nothing for them, they are a threat to our security. Are we safer now? True safety comes from abiding in God not in banning our neighbors in need; do we believe this?
