Chooks and Transfiguration

After returning from the day job, I piled into the kitchen and chook cooking. Well, not really. The chook was ready roasted, so it was peel and mash the spuds, (too watery IMHO), steam the broccoli and peas and microwave the Cadbury's chocolate puds Easy but fairly tasty. Our evening Office pointed to tomorrows' Feast of the Transfiguration. The reading we had was from 2 Peter:

We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eye-witnesses of his majesty. For he received honour and glory from God the Father when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, "This is my Son, my Beloved, with whom I am well pleased." We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven, while we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

(2 Peter 1. 16-19)

Be attentive - to the truth that Jesus the Christ is our Saviour and Redeemer. That God's mercy in and through him remains forever, even if we cannot fully perceive it's glory and generosity due to the faintness of our own vision and inability to bear the fullness of the light. See its light in even the darkest places of the world or of our own hearts and minds. And trust that the Day of the Glorious Resurrection will dawn and the Son of God, the Day star, will rise and reign over us and all of the Creation, that love and justice may abound.
