Hiroshima Day, 6th August

Norman Shanks

Digital download: A liturgy celebrating the Feast of the Transfiguration which coincidentally falls on the day that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The ‘shining power’ of the Transfiguration is compared with the ‘reverse transfiguration’ of the prioritisation of nuclear weapons over human needs. A liturgy of commitment to standing on the edge and working for a transformation to another, more creative and just, world.
