Today’s topic was the Transfiguration. Again, we read from Matthew 17:1-13, Mark 9:2-8, and Luke 9:28-36. I thought it was interesting that, although Jesus instructed His disciples that were with him, (Peter, James, and John), not to tell anyone about what they had seen on the mountain, only Luke specifically mentions the disciples actually keeping silent. Let’s face it–they were an impulsive bunch, (especially Peter!), and even with Jesus’s instructions, I kind of figured word may have leaked out anyway! No Transfiguration account in John, even though, once again, he was a witness to the event.
I have to admit, I was intimidated by making this symbol, because I didn’t want to mess up a likeness of Jesus. I guess it turned out OK, but it could have been better. I do think I would have been more comfortable just doing the light by itself, though!
