When it comes to the Transfiguration, Beloved, don’t be distracted by the dazzling clothes.
God who holds the law (Moses) in a hand that will be scarred will rule with justice tempered by mercy, not the other way around.
God who holds prophecy (Elijah) in a hand to be scarred will proclaim truth from behind the picket line, within the ranks of the needy and poor, from the place of poverty, not power.
Don’t be distracted by the dazzling clothes…that’s not where the miracle is.
The miracle is in the fact that God holds mercy over retribution and stands with the poor, not the powerful.
