11 February 24 – Transfiguration (COCU 17B)

2 Kings 2:1-12
Elisha followed,
undeterred by the prospect
faithfulness attracts.

Cosmic mystery
present in fire and whirlwind
swept Elijah up.

Steadfast to the last,
Elisha watched then took up
his master’s mantle.

Jesus’ disciples
fled at the crucial moment.
Are we among them?
