Today's Message :: Transfigured
Rev. Hardy H. Kim

the pebble of rough
and unprepossessing stone
the harsh dull case
splits open
to reveal
the lovely agate crystal
the boulder
cut asunder
shows a blue-gleaming layer of amethyst –
there is a principle
of beauty and order
at the heart of chaos
within life there is life

from “Walking the Coast,” (poem) by Kenneth White

This is a time of year when we can get bogged down—when we can feel the heaviness of our everyday, humdrum lives. The warmth and joy of the holiday season is definitely past. The blooming and vibrancy of spring still lies in the future. It can be hard to feel like we’re living a vibrant and vital life!

Yet into this season God’s miracle of the transfiguration comes. Out of nowhere, God’s power and God’s glory are revealed in Jesus! What are we supposed to do with that?

Please note that there is no video recording of this sermon. Experience the joy and wildness of this story as some of our young people present it to us in a new way! And ponder how this story might be connected to our lives.
