The Transfiguration, August 6, 2017 Luke 9:28-36 The Rev. Catharine Reid
There are interesting parallels between this story of Jesus walking on water and the crucifixion and resurrection stories that come later. This story, and the resurrection stories, illustrate the importance of faith, hope, and the life-giving power of the sacred. The parallels are so strong that I would even argue that the story of Jesus walking on water is a kind of resurrection story.
