“Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them” (Mark 9:2-3). This Sunday we will observe the miracle of Jesus’ transfiguration. It is a fitting way to end epiphany: the season when we reflect upon Christ’s glory. It is also a fitting way to move towards Lent, because it is in his suffering and death that Jesus’ glory shines most clearly for those with eyes to see. Jesus goes to the top of the mountain, but he doesn’t remain there like Peter (and perhaps we as well) would like him to do. Christ begins his long journey to Jerusalem. I want to encourage you to follow him this Lent. Perhaps rather than giving up something for Lent, you might feel called to take something on. Perhaps Christ is calling you to give in a new way. Is there a project in your church that Christ is encouraging you to support? Are there people struggling in your sphere of instance who could use your time and care? Our Lord is on the move, let’s follow.
