Transfiguration Sunday!

Join us this Sunday to celebrate the Transfiguration!

Luke 9: 28-34, by Chris Cook, a Southern Artist http://www.chriscookartist.com/html/spiritual.html

Transfiguration Sunday is a Sunday like Pentecost that is an important church celebration we often overlook because there is no secular holiday accompanying it and because it is a difficult story to understand. Yet it is an important day because the core question for today leads us into Lent, the Christian season that begins this Wednesday with Ash Wednesday.
