Transfiguration is a big fancy word that means change. We hear in today’s Bible story about a time that Jesus went up a mountain alone to pray. When he came down and the disciples saw him, he seemed different. His face and clothes were glowing. Maybe it was a small change, but being in God’s presence changed Jesus and it can change us too.
When you look in the back side of the spoon, you see your reflection. When you turn it over and look on the inside, something is different. Maybe it’s a small change — your face appears upside down, but it’s enough that you notice the change.
A change like inviting Jesus into your life and living as he would have you live – with love and kindness to all you meet. Sometimes we need to turn our ideas upside down and let change happen.
