    T�� T�������������� 17 And a�er six days Jesus

    took with him Peter and James, and John his broth- er, and led them up a high

    mountain by them- selves. 2 And he

    was transfigured before them, and his face shone

    like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. 3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses

    and Elijah, talking with him. 4 And Peter said to Je-

    sus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for

    you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 5 He was s�ll speaking when, be- hold, a bright cloud overshadowed them,

    and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well

    pleased; listen to him.” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were

    terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” 8 And when they li�ed up their eyes, they saw no

    one but Jesus only.

    February has three more Sundays in the Epipha-

    ny Season! Think light vs dark, following vs wan-

    dering, forgiving vs holding grudges, and prepa-

    ra�on for Lent.

    Being in Year A of the lec�onary, the Gospel

    readings are from the book of Ma�hew as we

    Follow the Light, Walk in the Light, explore the

    Gi� of Reconcilia�on and “witness” the Transfig-

    ura�on of our Lord.

    What a sight that the Transfigura�on had to

    have been! I have always thought of it as

    “clorox” Sunday, as Jesus appeared on a high

    mountain to Peter James and John. Jesus’ face

    shone like the sun, and His clothes became

    white as light! AND wait, there’s MORE! Moses

    and Elija also were there !

    To learn about Jesus’ message to them and us

    on the mountain, Pastor’s message will be

    “Come to Jesus” as we prepare to enter into the

    peniten�al season of Lent.

    The 26th of February is Ash Wednesday. Ser-

    vices that date will be at 4 and 6:30 p.m., with a

    light meal at 5:00. There will be the imposi�on

    of ashes as well as communion at both services.

    The ashes this year have been rendered from

    our palm branches from Palm Sunday last year.

    (think about that) The altar paraments will be

    violet and there will be no altar flowers for this

    season as we begin this somber and medita�ve

    season of the church year.

    Regular Wednesday services

    during the 40 days of Lent will

    be at 6:30, with light meal

    served at 5 p.m. For your

    future reference, Maundy

    Thursday and Good Friday will

    have 2 services at 4 and 6:30.

    We give thanks to God that the organ is fixed! As

    your instrumentalist, please accept my congrats

    that you all were pa�ent, great sports, and sang

    well with your hearts through the weeks with the

    piano only. Worship is worship, even when circum-

    stances change. Thanks be to God!

    If you are interested in just a short term commit-

    ment to sing in the choir, this season is YOUR op-

    portunity!. Contact Judy Kutach so music can be

    available for you. jkutach@livingsaviortexas.org

    Reminders: Wear your nametag, smile, and meet

    someone new every Sunday!

    The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases

    the power of the weak. Even youths grow �red and

    weary, and young men stumble and fall; Those

    who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.

    They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run

    and not grow weary, they will walk and not be


    Isaiah 40:29-31

    LSLC Board Workshop On Saturday, January 25, Living Savior hosted a Board workshop. There were 26 a�endees

    at the Workshop. A�endees included Board leaders and members, Church Council Officers

    and Church Staff . The purpose and objec�ve for the Workshop was shared, followed by a

    discussion regarding "Missional Ministry" led by Pastor Bailes. A�er LSLC's Vision Path Sur-

    vey, Vision and Mission statements were reviewed in joint session, Boards went into indi-

    vidual Breakout Sessions. Discussions were led by Board leaders aided by a worksheet-type

    discussion guide.

    The Workshop facilitated brainstorming sessions, general discussions and encouraged im-

    proved communica�ons, sharing and planning.

    Here are some of Jack Heintschel’s comments regarding the day :

    We must make sure we focus on our mission....Our ac�vi�es should bring people to Christ, prepare people to bring people to Christ and/or encourage one another to bring people to Christ. Basically, we are to be about making disciples (Jesus followers) of all na�ons. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all na�ons, bap�zing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

    Ma�hew 28:18-20 ... If we plan and strive to make every ac�vity and effort first-class, we will soon develop a reputa�on that will make those involved, glad they were involved and those who weren't, want to be involved next �me. This facilitates interest, encourages growth and (above all else) makes us more effec�ve at making disci- ples.
