I believe one of the realities of our world is there is no longer one truth.  It is a plural world of many possibilities.  Edward Farley talks about this as “multiphrenia” in his book, “Deep Symbols.”  To a large extent we get to choose the lens through which we will view the world and the scope of our lives.  We pick the perspective from which we understand ourselves, choose our values, and make decisions about our actions.  The Transfiguration offered the disciples an opportunity to make choices on how they would understand their world. Those choices are still before us.

We get to choose what will get our attention and what we will allow to change us.  What will transfigure our world?  What values system will transform your life?

  • Will it be the glory of the Lord shining through you…?
  • Will it be your holy moments…?
  • Will it be the touch of God in Christ Jesus—reaching out to you, calling out to you: “Get up and do not be afraid”…?
  • Will it be the way of the cross?
  • Will it be Jesus alive in you?
  • Will it be the glory of the Lord shining through you…?
