Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: January 19, 2013

Lamb of GodThis is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Themes of “servant” and “light” continue in our readings as we return to “ordinary time.” The readings call us to look at discipleship for ourselves within the context of our own history and times. We learn from the scripture authors what it is like to not only be called to mission for a particular people but to “be a light to all.” We are called to be “holy.” Our words and actions should support our being Christian.

Readings for this Sunday:

Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: January 12, 2014

Jesus BaptizedThis is the feast of the Baptism of the Lord. With echoes of the message of Epiphany, this feast interprets the baptism of Jesus as an anointing for ministry as the “suffering servant.” The servant’s mission is one of justice, healing, and liberation, undertaken with gentleness and compassion. Our mission is to bring about the reign of God where these qualities are realities.

We celebrate our oneness with Christ and with each other in this fundamental sacrament in which we become “children of God” who are empowered by the Spirit to believe in a society free from oppression. Because of this faith, we move from here into our world, seeking to heal, reconcile and work for justice and peace, just like Jesus did.

Phone Callers Needed Soon!

Cell phoneBetween January 8 and January 15, 2014 Epiphany's Stewardship Committee needs to call the 500+ families who have not returned stewardship information. Our task is to make one call per household (whether a person or machine answers) to remind families they need to return their stewardship information. Willing to help?

You’ve got two options:

  • Make about 20 calls from home during the week of Wednesday, January 8 through Wednesday, January 15
  • or join a phone calling party held in Epiphany’s Community Center on Thursday, January 9. We’ll have a 9:00 – 11:00 AM morning party and another in the evening from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

Three KingsThis is the Feast of Epiphany. Happy feast day! Like the magi in today’s scriptures, we, too, follow the light of God. As we do, we can become manifestations of God in our time, reflecting that light to others.

  • How has God’s light been leading you?
  • How are you being called to spread the light of Christ to others?
