Transfiguration Worship

Each year, on the final Sunday before the beginning of Lent, we celebrate Jesus' transfiguration on the mountaintop. In addition to Mark's version of this story, this year we also hear a reading from 2 Corinthians 4. Today's hymn is Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.

The order of worship found in the video included in this post is as follows:

  • 00:00 Chimes
  • 00:27 Prélude: Savior, Lead Us up the Mountain
  • 00:52 Welcome
  • 01:50 Proclamation: Mark 9.2-9
  • 02:51 Opening Sentence: Psalm 50.1-2
  • 03:11 Opening Prayer
  • 03:39 Lord's Prayer
  • 04:04 Hymn: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
  • 05:46 Message (Introduction)
  • 11:58 Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 4.5-7
  • 12:46 Message (Conclusion)
  • 14:13 Pastoral Prayer
  • 16:24 Song: God, Who Said Out of Darkness
  • 16:48 Communion Prayer
  • 17:39 Fraction/Institution
  • 18:29 Song: Send Out Thy Light 
  • 19:18 Benediction
  • 20:22 Response: Go Now in Peace
  • 22:14 Postlude: Seeking the Dazzling One

As always, it's best to watch the video in full-screen mode.
