Epiphany 2019: Unpacking Presence – You Are Blessed – with Linda Mulhall

Sunday, February 17, 2019

Theme: Epiphany 2019 – Unpacking Presence – You Are Blessed
Scripture: Matthew 5:1–12
Liturgy: Rev. Beth Walker
Sunday Message: Linda Mulhall

Life has a way of throwing curve balls. When we are young, we discover that our parents are very imperfect: some kids seem to have parents who love and care for them, but we don’t. As adults, we dream of having a perfect marriage, but our marriage turns into a prison and we are forced to give up the dream. We suffer through the deaths of family members and friends. We lose jobs and careers we love. We experience failure and disappointment. And sometimes no matter how hard we try, we can’t seem to make life turn out the way we want it to. In the Wisdom Teachings of Jesus, he says, “When all these tragedies happen to us, we are blessed!” How can this be?
