And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them.

You can’t fake TRUTH! But it is revealed, all around, within, above and below, right here, closer than your own breath. It is inherent, indelible and beautiful beyond imagining.  God reveals Himself for you and for me ALL THE TIME. Open your eyes and you will see. Open your ears – This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!

Similarly, you can’t fake Easter. It is not possible to celebrate, to really feel, Easter, without entering first into Lent and then continuing deeper into Holy Week. Come to the services, worship together.  Come into church in the quiet times and pray, or gaze at the salt marsh and the sea. Look into God’s face, receive of his breath, offer Him your troubles and your joys, your fears and your dreams. Talk with Him. Walk with Him. He will show you an awful Cross, and you will cry, but put your hand in His hand, as He holds it open for you. Keep walking and you will see Transfiguration…of…everything… dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach!
