Transfiguration Sunday comes around every church year. You can think of it as the last Sunday of Epiphany or the last Sunday before Lent but it comes up no matter what you think of it. This is the beauty and (sometimes) the challenge of following the Lectionary.
I am grateful to all of those preaching people who went before me. Some of them allowed their sermons to be published or wrote about what they were thinking about some texts. One of the best resources for me, is Frederick Buechner. The sermon has a couple of quotes from him about this whole idea of Transfiguration, and how he has changed my thinking regarding it.
The sermon is shorter than some because we also celebrated Holy Communion. By the way, if anyone would like to join us via Zoom, let me know and I’ll get you the link.

PS The liturgical colour for Transfiguration is white so my signature needed a bit of work . . . just in case you were wondering.
