Looking Ahead



NicDear Friends,

Join us this Sunday, February 26th, as Nicholas B. Merchant brings us God’s word from Matthew 17: 1-9 and 2 Peter 1: 16-21.

This Sunday, February 26, 2017, is Transfiguration Sunday and the final Sunday before the Lenten season. We will examine Matthew’s account of Peter, James, and John accompanying Jesus up a mountain there they see Jesus enveloped in brilliant light, standing alongside Moses and Elijah. The disciples hear a voice declare “This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!”

The Transfiguration of Jesus Christ in the synoptic gospels marks a transition in Jesus’ ministry. After this event in the gospel narrative, Jesus fixes his gaze on Jerusalem and the events to come. For us, it marks the transition into a season of reflection and a renewed focus on our own spiritual disciplines.

We will begin the Lenten season together a week from today, Wednesday, March 1, 2017. I hope that you will join us for dinner in the Fellowship Hall at 5:00 p.m. and Ash Wednesday service at 6:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. The service will conclude with the imposition of ashes.

If you have the time, you will find it helpful to read Matthew 17: 1-9 and 2 Peter 1: 16-21 as you prepare for worship this Sunday.

 

 

Faithfully,

Nic Merchant
