The final Sunday following Epiphany, and before Lent, is Transfiguration Sunday. All three of the synoptic gospels tell a story of Peter, James, and John accompanying Jesus to the top of a holy mountain. There, before their eyes, Jesus is transfigured or transformed into a dazzling brightness.

A FRESH START – ARIA’S STORY
We all know what it’s like to need a fresh start. But not all of us have support systems and opportunities in place to help us get the new beginning we need. Aria was in the third year of getting a law degree when she discovered she was pregnant. With limited financial resources and no close family to lean on, she had to take a break from school and go to work. Thanks to support from people like you, her story doesn’t end there. Listen to Aria share her story in this video.
