Gospel Reading (for the week of 2/27/21)
Matthew 17: 1–13

After six days, Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John the brother of James and led them together up a high mountain apart from the others. There his appearance was transformed before them.
His face shone bright as the sun, and his garments became white, shining bright as the light. And behold, there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, conversing in the spirit with Jesus.
And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be in this place. If you wish, I will build here three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them and suddenly they heard a voice from the cloud that said, “This is my son, whom I love. In him, I am revealed. Hear him.”
When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces to the ground in awe and terror.
And Jesus approached them, and touching them said, “Rise, and do not fear.”
And raising their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus.
As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them: “Tell no one what you have seen until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.”
And the disciples asked him, “What is meant when the scribes say, ‘First Elijah must come again’?” He answered, “Elijah comes indeed, and prepares all things. But I say to you, Elijah has already come, and the people did not recognize him but rather have done to him whatever they pleased. In the same way, the Son of Man will suffer much at their hands.”
Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them about John the Baptist.

The Spiritual Foundation of Morality: 
Francis of Assisi and the Christ Impulse

A small group has taken on to study this lecture cycle by Rudolf Steiner once a month.  The seed for the study stems out of an effort to keep the impulse of our dear friend Ron Petrou alive in the city of Philadelphia. If you are interested to be part of the study, please let Rev. Minassian or Tish Pierce know. 

Regional Update

Priest Child Education Fund
Dear North American congregations, dear friends, In past years through many generous gifts, we raised funds for the Priest Child Education Fund. That money was distributed to three North American priest families who were able to send their children to Waldorf schools and pay for additional educational costs as a direct result of these gifts. They were extremely grateful to receive this support.
Why do we need this fund in our region? Please click here to find out.

In case of an emergency, please call Rev. Minassian at 240-381-8557.
