Have you ever owned or watched a child play with a Transformer toy?
The toy can be shifted to change from a vehicle or some device or animal to an action figure and back again. Perhaps that might help with an understanding of the Transfiguration.
On Sunday we celebrated the Transfiguration, an important event in the life of Jesus in which God’s glory was made manifest. We learned that in Jesus there is far more than what meets the eye. Humanity and Divinity are before us as we are directed to listen to Jesus.
Unlike the toy, our transformation or transfiguration will take more than a few twists and turns of parts. Let us support each other in prayer as we recall the words of the song by Bob Hurd: “Transfigure us O Lord … break the chains that bind us … speak your healing word … where you lead we’ll follow … Transfigure us O Lord”
