Prayer of Confession and Lord’s Prayer

God of love and might, giver of life, you shine light into our lives to reveal your glory and your will. Through your son, Jesus, bring us to new heights, as you did for Peter, James, and John. Open our eyes and ears to your wisdom and empower us, we pray, to proclaim your presence through word and deed…

(silent prayer)


Our Father* who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen.

*Please feel free to pray as you wish. We respect tradition — and we welcome images

of the Divine that are diverse and inclusive.


O Wondorus Sight, O Vision Fair

Todd Swavey, tenor

[NCH #184

O wondrous sight, O vision fair of glory

that the church shall share, Which Christ upon the

mountain shows, where brighter than the sun, Christ glows!

From age to age the tale declare, how with the

three disciples there, Where Moses and E-

lijah meet, they with the Christ God's future greet.


The law and prophets there have place, two chosen

witnesses of grace; The voice og God out

from the cloud proclaims the Human One aloud.


With shining face and bright array, Christ designs to 

manifest today What glory shall be

theirs beyond, who live within God's loving bond.


And faithful hearts are raised on high by this great

vision's mystery, For which in joyful

strains we raise the voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.

Scripture Reading: Mark 9:2-9

Deacon Ellen Rathke

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!’ Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them anymore, but only Jesus.

As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
