There Came Wise Men

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,

Wondering when to take down your tree and lights? January 6 is a good day. Though the world around us may not show it, Christmastide, as the church recognizes the 12-day season, continues on until that day, the Feast of the Epiphany. We will have an evening, candlelit service that night, Wednesday, Jan. 6, at 7:00pm.

On Sunday, January 10, it is the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord, the day we remember Jesus’ baptism, and a big baptism day in the church. We will baptize Maria Jennings that day, with the Rev. Dr. Alan Gregory preaching and presiding.

The following Sunday, January 17, we will have our All Mission Meeting immediately after the service. That’s the time when we pray over our goals and strengths together; and for our active members to review and approve our stewardship plan, and elect our new bishop’s committee members and lay delegate for council.

Who said January was a boring month?

Together may we press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Your vicar,
