Transfiguration

ColourWeaving, David Yeo Poulton

Transfigured

Revealed magnificence

Appearing in radiant glory

Truth bursting forth

illumination of wonder

divine umbilical cord connected

radiance raining upon beholders

What words do we use to describe the indescribable?

What metaphors bring us closer to the experience, the meaning?

Whatever we think happened, however we interpret the story, this revered and remembered moment holds its place in mind and heart.

Transfiguration Sunday falls on the last Sunday before Lent in the Church Year.

Traditional readings:

Exodus 24:12-18
