Transfiguration Of Christ And All Creation: Journey To Wholeness says
Retreat participants examine the biblical story of Jesus’ Transfiguration “on a high mountain” and connect this with their spiritual longings and present-day concerns. These are addressed with a blend of personal reflection and commentary on relevant theological and scriptural texts, literary works, music, and art. Transfiguration is central to transformation of human nature, and not just a conservation or preservation of natural resources but a transfiguration of all creation. When Transfiguration is celebrated as “feast of beauty” it re-energizes current discussions of spiritual relation to environmental attitudes and policy.
