the gift of vulnerable love...

For the week of Sunday, January 6, 2019

This Sunday is Epiphany Sunday, the Sunday when we celebrate the 'making known' of the Christ Child to the Gentiles, or non-Jews.
We will hear again in Matthew 2:1-12 the old story of the Gentile Wise discovering the Christ Child and their response to the child and consider the meaning of God's gift of vulnerable love in a troubled time.
All this, and we'll sing, pray, share our struggles and our joys, and find companions on the journey of faith.
See you in church!
~ Rev. Susanne
