Volume 46, No.1

Welcome Epiphany!
How quickly we enter into the season of Epiphany! Already it's January 7, the first Sunday of this season that lasts eight weeks this year and takes us all the way to Lent. Epiphany is the time of celebration of the revelation of Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God. Looking ahead, all of the Sundays of this season recall revelatory events in his life: the baptism of Jesus, his first miracle at the wedding in Cana, the young Jesus teaching in the temple, announcing the fulfillment of the scriptures, filling the fishermen's nets, proclaiming what we've come to call the Beatitudes, teaching and culminating with God's great announcement, "This is my Son, my Chosen..."

So let us enter into this season attentive to the ways that the blessing and the lordship of Christ are manifest to us. Let's recognize and acknowledge his presence - as he gives us new hope, as he binds up our brokenness, as he renews our courage and energy, as he forgives us, as he loves us and fills us with life abundant.

Visitors, new members and old, come travel through this Epiphany season with us! Come and rediscover all that God is still actively doing - even for us, even now.
