Sunday, February 27:  Transfiguration Sunday

O God, we come today to refresh and to restore all that is within our hearts and minds.  Like the disciples climbing the mountain with Jesus, we come expecting nothing yet prepared to experience your love.  During this time together, may we find our true selves just as Jesus’ true self was revealed on the mountaintop.  May we find your wisdom, and its strength, for we know that your love restores and refreshes us in mysterious ways.  O God, fill us anew.  Amen.

Jim McKean, Severn Shores U.C., Severn, Ont.
