O God, we stand in awe at the transfiguration of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Words escape us at the majesty of your presence and the ways in which you make yourself known to us. You are present in the stars and the aurora borealis, in the mountains and forests, in the oceans and rivers, in bread and wine, and water and the Word. Your greatness is more than we can comprehend. And we, like the disciples, are sometimes terrified, for with you nothing is impossible, there is nowhere we can go where we are separate from you. You see our sin and weakness and still choose to call us children of God. Forgive us and restore to all creatures and creation the peace and wholeness you desire, so that war and violence, sin and brokenness may give way to your most holy, infinite, and brilliant light, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Gospel: Luke 9: 28-36 Jesus is transfigured on the mountain.
