Happy Epiphany! Did you remember? With the arrival of the wise men, Christmas is now officially over. I hope you got the most out of the 12 days and will continue to celebrate the light of Christ.
With the arrival of Epiphany comes a season of growing in Christ. It begins with celebrating Jesus' baptism (Matthew 3:13-17) and remembering ours. We'll reaffirm our baptisms in the sanctuary services this Sunday as a way of recommitting our lives to Christ's service.
Also in the sanctuary, we'll consider what God has in mind for bruised reeds and dimly burning wicks (Isaiah 42:1-9). Ever felt like one of those? Ever encounter someone who felt like one of those?
In The Well, the attention will be on one who wore camel's hair and ate locusts and wild honey (Mark 1:4-11). What could someone like that teach us about being God's servant today?
Of course all of this preparation is contingent on being able to gather for worship. We don't know what the weather will do this weekend. If we have to adjust our schedule, we will post that news on our Facebook page. If you have any question, please check there first.
I hope we'll be together Sunday. Wherever you are, may you know the light of Christ.
