Emil Belsky | February 23, 2020

Did you ever wonder what the Transfiguration story really means? Fr. Emil reminds us of “those times in life when mysterious things happened that opened our way of thinking to a completely new vision of life. It could be something as simple as seeing green grass beginning to grow out here even though it’s not quite that time, and we begin to think in terms of spring and renewal. There are moments in life when the membrane between awareness and non-awareness of a deeper consciousness begins to kind of bubble through. . . that’s kind of what happened in the Transfiguration story. Maybe some years later, there was a realization of What and Who this Person was really meant to be.” This is a perfect lead-in to the season of Lent, as we begin again to absorb the meaning of Christ's time with us.

Caring For All Creation

Have you wondered why Nativity does so much creation-related ministry? It's an important part of who we are as Episcopalians, but also a critical part of Nativity's identity.  Let Rev. Nature tell you about it - her words, captured in a video from the 2019 Diocesan Convention.  If you'd rather read the text, you'll find that here.
