WE HAVE COME TO WORSHIP OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, FOR HIS RADIANT LIGHT HAS DRAWN US INTO HIS PRESENCE.

 Welcome

Silent Preparation

The Call to Worship:                                  (responsively)
L:         The Light has been shining.
P:        The Light of Epiphany has been shining.
L:         We have seen the coming of the kings.
P:        We have seen the coming of John the Baptist.
L:         We have seen the coming of Jesus.
P:        But the season of Epiphany is almost over.
L:         Today with the Transfiguration, we see Jesus clearly.
P:        But in Lent the Lord is hidden in shadow.
L:         Some will follow Him.
P:        Some will mock Him.
L:         Some will be healed by Him.
P:        Some will crucify Him.
All:      Let the light shine while it may.  Let us all in our worship together walk to that light.
