St. John's Franklin Podcast

Michael McGhee preached a sermon entitled “Transfiguration” for The Fifth Sunday After Epiphany on February 15, 2015. The Transfiguration speaks to our present reality and to our future hope. John Yoder put it this way "To know that the Lamb who was slain was worthy to receive power not only enables his disciples to face martyrdom when they must; it also enables his disciples to go about their daily crafts and trades, to do their duties as parents and neighbors, without being driven to despair by cosmic doubt. Even before the broken world can be made whole by the Second Coming, the witnesses to the first coming-through the very fact that they proclaim Christ above the powers, the Son above the angels-are enabled to go on proleptically in the redemption of creation."
