Epiphany Greetings 1-13-2019


The motto over our church door reads 20 C + M+ B 19; that is, Christus Mansionem Benedicat 2019 / May Christ Bless this House, 2019

Faith is the star that guides you. I found this explanation of our Christmas/Epiphany liturgies in the writings of Thomas Keating: The key to understanding the Christmas/Epiphany mystery and to receiving it is the openness we bring to it. "The message is: We belong to the universe and to the God who created it. We belong to the God who is within us. We belong to the human family in which God dwells and manifests. The light and life of God are available in the measure of our increasing receptivity. Each year that we celebrate this opening to the gifts of God, we open more."

What a beautiful and wondrous gift we are given. May our lives and the life of our congregation shine forth with this gift into the world.
