Shiny happy people - the Transfiguration and us

20 - 26 August 2016 (Sat - Fri)

All Age      Fully catered



Jesus becomes shiny, then chats to Moses and another chap from the Old Testament, while Peter enthusiastically misunderstands (again).

On the face of it, the Transfiguration is an odd tale that is incidental to the main Gospel narrative of Jesus' life and works. This week will explore why we might regard the transfiguration as the most important feast after Christmas, Easter and Pentecost, for it opens the door to our direct personal relationship with God.

By examining scripture, theology, liturgy and the arts, by discussing, making, reflecting, praying and celebrating, by being challenged and by having fun, we shall learn about what happened on the mountain, try to understand what it means for us and draw on our collective wisdom for how we can nurture God's light shining within us as transfiguration people.
