Epiphany 2019: Unpacking Presence

The season of Epiphany commemorates the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, a holy presence born into the darkest night. They brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. In turn, we have received many gifts from the Christ Child including hope, joy, peace and love. Are these gifts simply words to us? As Christians, what meaning do these gifts and other, similar words impart to us and our faith? During the coming weeks we will be Unwrapping the Presence of the Incarnation in our lives.

Theme: Epiphany 2019 – Unpacking Presence – Joy & Integrity
Scripture: John 2:1–11
Liturgy: Rev. Beth Walker
Sunday Message: Rev. Beth Walker

Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic selfhood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks, we will also find our path to an authentic way of living and service in the world. True vocation joins self and service, as Frederick Buechner asserts when he defines vocation as “the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.” This week we will explore the joy of living an authentic, joy-filled life.
