THE TRANSFIGURATION 

If the Mount Tabor experience was a glorious and life-changing one for Peter, James and John, how much more for all of us who have embarked upon our own special Lenten journey towards a personal transfiguration!  This very morning we have come together as a community – not of three men but of many more:  men and women, young and old – and all of us have entered into God’s holy presence as did Peter, James and John.  God enlightens our lives as we turn away from sin, in favour of beholding his glory!

Let the words of the hymn ‘Love divine, all loves excelling’ speak to you as you read them:

Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heav’n, to earth come down,
fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown.

Changed from glory into glory till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Charles Wesley (1707-88)

Fr. Philip Sainter
