Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church
Worship Focus for February 11
The Rev. Hardy Kim, preaching

This is a time of year when we can get bogged down—when we can feel the heaviness of our everyday, humdrum lives. The warmth and joy of the holiday season is definitely past. The blooming and vibrancy of spring still lies in the future. It can be hard to feel like we’re living a vibrant and vital life!

Yet into this season God’s miracle of the transfiguration comes. Out of nowhere, God’s power and God’s glory are revealed in Jesus! What are we supposed to do with that?

Come join us in worship this Sunday. Experience the joy and wildness of this story as some of our young people present it to us in a new way! And come ponder with us, how this story might be connected to our lives.

cut asunder 
shows a blue-gleaming layer of amethyst–
there is a principle 
of beauty and order 
at the heart of chaos 
within life there is life 

-from “Walking the Coast,” (poem) by Kenneth White
