A message from the Priest
Dear Friends in Christ,
As summer draws to a close and a new season begins, there is plenty afoot at Epiphany.
We ended our season of summer worship with an outdoor service on the lawn, which gave us the opportunity to wave to our neighbours and let them know the good news that we share with one another and that we are commissioned to share with the world. All of us. Here is what I wrote on my blog following that Sunday service:
Today, we took our service out on to the lawn. In keeping with inside-out day, my congregation preached the gospel to me.
I asked them who they thought Jesus was, and they told me: Son of God, healer, preacher, prophet, teacher, healer, hope, promise, the spark of the divine that lights up within each of us and united us to the life and light of God; God Incarnate.
Incarnate. Every time I really think about the promise of a god who loves us so much as to become flesh and blood, live with us, die with us, come back for us; when I think about what God is and what we are, it blows my mind to imagine God becoming incarnate.
Then I carry on as though nothing happened.
This morning, my congregation reminded me of the gospel. Truly, they are the rocks upon which our church is built.
Thank you for your gifts of grace and faith.
