Exodus 24:12-18, Psalm 2, Matthew 17:1-9
The Penny Drops

The Transfiguration stands as the last story in Epiphany season for a reason, it is the epitome of the "light stories."  From the magi following the wandering star to "you are the light of the world" the season of Epiphany has revealed God's desire and desire in some interesting and shocking ways.  Now, in this story that feels more like a waking vision, we experience how the light of Epiphany not only reveals the story of salvation past but opens doors to our present experience of God in the faces of our fellow worshippers.
