February 11th 2024 -“Does God Keep Secrets?”

2024-02-11 “Does God keep secrets?” 11:00 AM

Dear friends,

THIS SUNDAY the Rev. Linda Faith Chalk will be leading us in worship.

OUR GOSPEL READING is Mark 9: 2-9, “The Transfiguration”.  Jesus takes three of his disciples – Peter, James, and John – up a high mountain.  There, they witness a remarkable transformation as Jesus’ appearance becomes radiant, and Moses and Elijah appear, representing the law and the prophets.  A cloud envelops them, and a voice from heaven declares Jesus as the beloved son, urging the disciples to listen to him.  This glorious event reveals Jesus’ divine nature, confirming his identity as the Messiah.
