Second Sunday after the Epiphany, January 16, 2022

In the midst of ongoing global oppression, faithful deconstruction, and the weariness of a global pandemic, it’s understandable to feel like Jesus is missing in action. Like Jesus’ parents, we feel the fear and disorientation of the search. Seriously, where is Jesus? In the midst of all that is happening in his community, Jesus takes a pause, interrupts regular rhythms and traditions, and requires the people that love him to search for him. How do we respond when we lose Jesus and find him someplace unexpected?

First Sunday after the Epiphany, January 9, 2022

Epiphany invites us to be attentive to what is being revealed. We have learned much in the last two years of pandemic, protest, and polarization. We have learned and confronted brokenness and vulnerability. We have also learned about strength, community, and possibility. How do we as a church learn from our ancestors to speak good news to a world navigating a time of wilderness?

Observing the Epiphany of Jesus, January 2, 2022

This Sunday we enter into the mystery of the Epiphany, traditionally observed on January 6 after the 12th day of Christmas (yes, those “12 days of Christmas”). Often collapsed into the Christmas story, the Epiphany of Jesus (as recounted by Matthew) conjures up a mystical setting replete with a starry night sky, mysterious magi, and treasure.
Yet at its simplest, perhaps, the Epiphany is about Christ being revealed to people who feel compelled to seek the light of God’s love.
And being transformed by what they find.
“Where is the child?” those wise people inquired. And centuries later, wise people, as it has been said, still seek.
Let’s enter into this new season with curiosity and with gladness, seeking the light of God’s love.
