First Lutheran Church of the Trinity
Transfiguration of Our Lord + Burning of the Palms
Sunday, March 3, 2019
Witnesses to the glory of God in the face of Jesus will be unable to avoid reflecting that glory in the world. It was true for Moses. It was doubtless true for Peter, James, and John. We pray that it will be true of all of us who see the glory of the Lord in the word and in the supper and who are being “transformed into the same image” by the Spirit of God.
After worship we will burn palms for the ashes for Ash Wednesday. If you have palms from last year, please bring them.
