A Christian Community

The Church of the Transfiguration is a growing community of Jesus’ followers seeking to welcome the stranger, seek peace in our city, celebrate diversity, and be the hands and feet of Christ to our neighbours.

Located in the heart of Davisville Village in uptown Toronto, we are a progressive Anglican community that gathers for worship at Transfiguration on Sundays and lives out our Christian faith across the entire GTA throughout the week.

Welcome to #transfigonline and thanks for joining us for worship. We hope you enjoy watching back the Sunday Morning Service from June 26, 2022. The sermon today was from Luke 9: 51-62 and Michael talked about the journey of love through God. The Music Reflection that picked up the Scriptural theme was A Place at the Table by Shirley Erena Murray.

Happy Pride!

There's something so satisfying and restorative about finding a place where we #belong -and the people to whom we belong. We see this example of #community and belonging in the doctrine of the #Trinity; we see how #Jesus belongs to the #Creator of Heaven and Earth, who belongs to Jesus as a Father, and how the #HolySpirit flows back and forth between them -who then welcomes us into that heavenly community as well!

On Trinity Sunday, our morning community met as usual, and our Water’s Edge community met for our monthly service in the afternoon, which means that Deb shared two reflection songs instead of just one. The first was an old hymn, “Come Holy Ghost”, which speaks beautifully of the relationship of our #Triune #God. The second was Iron and Wine’s “Call It Dreaming”, which talks about belonging and #home revolving around those with whom we have community. Both songs helped us to reflect on this holy mystery of the Trinity, and welcome us into all the facets of God’s presence.

So much about #faith is hard to explain. Even though last week’s #Gospel (John 16:12-15) and the passage of Pentecost in Acts are so familiar, all we know for sure is that our faith is still full of #mystery. When discussing mysterious subjects like the #HolySpirit , a simple explanation is simply not available.

For Sunday’s #Pentecost service, Deb chose to sing Holy Ghost, by one of her favourites: Mavis Staples. The fabulous singer is also a woman of deep faith, as evidenced in so many of her lyrics. "Holy Ghost" is not the upbeat, joyful track one might expect to reflect the scene from Acts. Instead, Mavis offers us a moody and soulful description of what the Holy Spirit feels like, which sounds like someone (with experience!) who has found great peace with a profound mystery. When things can't be explained, and so much seems to be going wrong, it is the Holy Spirit that keeps us hanging on, sustaining us through things when they don't make sense. May we all find this kind of #peace that will allow us not only to hold on when the going is rough, but also to remember we are being held on to, because we, like Jesus, are #childrenofGod .

In humility and gratitude we acknowledge that we are gathered upon traditional territories, including those of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We also recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land.
