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
