Glimpsing the hope set before us

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

Dear All Saints and St Marys

Lent is fast approaching, as Valentines Day passes and the February half term comes to an end we enter into a different season and rhythm of life in the church. The last Sunday before lent traditionally comes with the reading of the Transfiguration. A moment in Jesus life which is recalled in Matthew, Mark and Luke.

Jesus is seen by his disciples in a new and different way, it is a heavenly moment of the hope glimpsed by a few of the disciples with Jesus. It is a hope which is set before all of us, and a moment of glory that carries us into Lent, a time when we travel with Jesus thought his Journey to the Cross and beyond.

I pray that we will all have moments in the coming days when we get to glimpse the glory of God.
