Preaching: Pastoral Steve Knudson Sermon Synopsis: Today’s festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days. On a high mountain Jesus is revealed as God’s beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism. This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem. In times of darkness and challenge, when it is hard to perceive the good or God, or to understand the ways of God, we hear his call to listen to Jesus, to hold on to the light of God's grace given in Jesus. When it is dark, hold on to the light. Scriptures:2 Peter 1:16-21; Matthew 17:1-9NRSV Special Music: 5 p.m.: Middle School Choir & Handbells 9 a.m.: Adult Choir
