B12.2: Transfiguration Sunday, Year B

Sue Eaves

The Rev. Sue Eaves was born in England. After a career in education with a special interest in the under served, she emigrated to the United States in 1981. Ordained in 1991, she has served a number of Episcopal churches in Richmond, Virginia, and is currently serving as Interim Rector at the historic St. Paul’s. Her sermon for Transfiguration Sunday looks at the text from Mark 9:2-9 and begins with memories of her mother in England literally boiling the dirt out of clothing, lifting it steaming from the tub, running it through a mangle, and then hanging it in the sunshine until it was “dazzling white.” That kind of purity was the result of “an intense labor of love,” Eaves says. “And that’s what Jesus was all about.”
