All transfigurations, from the resurgence of Rockford's urban center to Jesus on the mountaintop, have one thing in common: First, someone has to see the potential for greatness in the ordinary. God has seen the potential in all of us, has seen the vision of what our lives and our world can be transfigured in His light and love. Faith should be dynamic, not bound by the past but a proactive belief in the present and our shared future. As is written in the letter to the Hebrews, "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." Let us all keep our eyes open for the hidden potentials that can usher in the transfigurations we desire.
The Scripture references are 2 Kings 2:1-12, Psalm 50:1-4, and 2 Corinthians 4:3-6. The Gospel reference is Mark 9:2-9.
