Pew Leaflet Sunday 26 February 2017

As we reflect on the Transfiguration, our task is to recognize the way God’s glory is revealed in Jesus – not just in his miracles and resurrection, but also in his sacrificial death.

God of all blessing, in Christ you open for us a new way of living: purge us of our easy acceptance of the ways of the world, and forge in us the radical vision of your reign, that your will may be done on earth as in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives …

What a fascinating mix! The …
