From Innocence to Freedom
Readings: Psalm 99, Luke 9:28-43
This Transfiguration Sunday, I’m preaching on the grief we experience when we see what we have known and thought was true turns out not to be, the valley between the the release of the old but before the new, and the joy and agency available once we begin to move to freedom. This move from innocence to freedom, this collecting of our stories for a truer understanding of what frees us, the permission to see ourselves reflected, the salvation that is possible when we understand that love is possible only between two freed spirits, when we learn to see with God’s eyes, this move may fill us with joy and purpose on behalf of the kingdom of God.
