|Goat Fell on the Isle of Arran, Scotland|
What happened to that space we usually have to plan Lenten worship and study?
I know I'd love to spend just a little time up in those mountain mists, getting my thoughts together for a marathon season.
Maybe that's why, when I preach T-fig, I spend more time focussing on what happened after Jesus and his favoured disciples come down off the mountain than what happened at the top.
So, which camp are you in? Nestled with the Moses and Elijah lookalikes on the mountain? Or down at the bottom, with those feckless disciples who couldn't command healing for someone in need?
Perhaps, rather than T-fig, you are on Epiphany 5 or even the Narrative Lectionary.
Whatever, because Wednesday IS Ash Wednesday, you'll be wanting to use up all that rich food you have around so that you can practice austerity in Lent. So bring it to this table where we shall feast together and assist one another in a smooth transition from Epiphany to Lent.
And, for giggles, here is a video that seems to me to illustrate Transfiguration. I may use this in children's time.
