Reflection: This Sunday, the story of the Transfiguration features Jesus, shining brightly, white garments glowing. Jesus is our light. In our passage today from 2 Corinthians, we are reminded that light shines in darkness.
Jesus revealed his glory to his disciples by way of glowing. His light shone and affected the disciples. Today, look for ways that you can let your light shine. How can you reveal Jesus through your actions and have them affected by what you do? --Chad Hershberger, Executive Director
