It’s the last Sunday before Lent. Are you burying or otherwise saying farewell to the alleluia? Will you be preaching the Transfiguration? Revised Common Lectionary folks can find a discussion of Matthew’s text here. The post includes an interrogation of the Light/Dark imagery in the passage, and offers ways to approach it. Narrative Lectionary folks can find commentary on Mark’s version here. If you do Transfiguration on the Feast Day in August (as I am hearing on Twitter), what will you preach this week?
What are you thinking? What are you preaching? What questions do you have? What else do you have going on in this lead-up to Lent? How can we help?
We’re here to remind one another that we are not alone. I have a loaf of bread dough ready to bake, if anyone wants fresh bread later (or in the morning).
