The One is Shining Forth

Psalm 50: 1 “From the rising of the sun to where it sets, God, the Lord God, speaks, calling out to the earth.”

There is a fascinating story in the Bible about Jesus called the Transfiguration. Transfiguration means “the experience of momentary divine radiance”. Jesus and a few of his followers climbed up a mountain where Jesus shone like a bright light and God spoke from above, calling Jesus his Beloved Son. The story has been told and retold over the centuries because it teaches us something about the power of God and it names Jesus as the One who brings light and life to the world. Even now, God, through Jesus Christ, shines light upon the world and calls for peace, justice, and love. Christians respond with faith as they seek to answer God’s call.

This weekend we celebrate Valentine’s Day, a day that highlights the love we share in all our relationships. It will be a different holiday this year without romantic dinners out and gatherings. However, even in this time, we can still let our love for others shine forth by connecting in safely-distanced ways, looking forward to the day when we can be together again.

Knox Presbyterian Church will continue to offer ONLINE worship services only. Please join us this Sunday as we complete the series “God is Holding Your Life” and virtually gather for a time of prayer, music, and worship.
