Worship Theme for Sunday, February 11th

This Sunday’s gospel lesson tells of a “mountaintop experience” shared by three of Jesus’ disciples. As Jesus is transfigured before their eyes, a voice from the cloud implores hearers to “listen to Jesus”. As Jesus’ disciples are we following him? Just as God made light to shine out of darkness at creation, God makes the light of Jesus Christ shine in our lives through our service to others. Scripture lessons: 2 Kings 2:1-12; Psalm 50:1-6; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6; Mark 9:2-9

Prayer of the Day: “Almighty God, resplendent light of your truth shines from the mountaintop into our hearts. Transfigure us by your beloved Son, and illumine the world with your image, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.” Amen
