OC2: Br. Merrick Moses


We experience transfiguration in transition
By illuminating who we really are…
We emerge like Christ from the tomb …

OtherWise Christian 2 v. 3

Merrick said he wanted to write about the Transfiguration, but then came back and asked if I would accept a poem. I’m so glad that he did! It’s the shortest entry in OtherWise Christian 2, but it’s powerful.

Merrick’s chapter, “Transfiguration,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (forthcoming spring 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing.
