Finding Life in the Dead of Winter:
The Season of Epiphany: Epiphany traditions are not part of my childhood memories. Yes, we knew there was a song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. As a young mother I gave our children a small present each day, usually a forgotten toy wrapped. They caught on and that was the end of that. Seminary expanded my Epiphany understanding as Presbyterians focus on the baptism of Jesus on the Sunday closest to the twelfth day after Christmas or January 6th. . This church has a tradition of an Epiphany Feast recalling the three Kings/Magi search for and adoration of Jesus (Matthew 2: 1-12).
This past month, I have had several people ask me the password to the church’s public network. I am always happy to share the password to the network but I am not always available when you need the password. There are signs displaying the current password in conspicuous locations throughout the church.
For as long as I can remember, Joan McClure has been taking wonderful pictures of our church life. Joan has expressed an interest in reducing the number of these occasions.
The Christmas Joy Offering celebrates the coming of Jesus Christ, the “wondrous gift” of God with us. What a “wondrous gift” indeed! In gratitude to God for the wondrous gift of Jesus, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) invites you to join this celebration of God’s presence with us by supporting those in need of help and hope.
How much does a meal cost? I guess it depends upon the meal: breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sometimes we eat simply; sometimes we splurge and eat extravagantly.
As we move into the holiday season think of how a gift bought in the SERRV shop would provide a double opportunity of gift giving! Not only would you have a unique gift, but you would be creating positive change around the world, helping to lift disadvantaged artisans, farmers, and their families out of poverty.
