Theme: Epiphany: Community – knowing your are Beloved
Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17
Liturgy /Sermon: Rev Beth Walker
The focus of this story today is the descent of the dove and the voice from heaven. God is directly present at the Baptism of Jesus, the first Sunday reading in the Epiphany season; the second reading is on the Transfiguration of Jesus, the last Sunday in the Epiphany. Both are divine pronouncements, that Jesus is God’s beloved Son and God is pleased with Jesus. This week we will consider what it means to be named in community where you belong and you are beloved.
- Think of a time when you have felt beloved?
- How does community make you feel that you belong?
