Garden Center Visit For August

Scene from Garden Center Visit For August.

Fr. Andrew began our visit with the story of the Transfiguration. Jesus took Peter, James and John up to mount Tabor to pray. Suddenly the three men saw the appearance of Jesus change; His face shone like the sun and his clothes were as white as the purest snow with Moses and Elijah at His side. Then a bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice was heard saying, "This is my Beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased, hear Him."

Fr. Andrew talked about the upcoming total solar eclipse. He said, "If you look directly at the eclipse without protecting your eyes, your eyes will burn." And that the solar eclipse is created, but Jesus is an UN-created light that doesn't hurt you. Jesus is showing us what is waiting for us in Heaven with His warm light.

Enthusiasm filled the room all evening with loud voices singing praises to God. This joy continued as everyone held their candles while praying the Lord's Prayer.
