“Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them,
and his clothes became dazzling white,
such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.”
Last week, we saw that we are connected to all else that is because of our contingency. It is not necessary that we exist, but we do. The love of the Trinity, between Father, Son, and Spirit, flowed out in creation. The whole universe exists from and for that love. To be is to be connected to all else that is in love.
