The 11th Hour Preacher's Party: New Year Choices
Photo from the collection of Mompriest, taken by Mr. Mompriest
As we begin a new year we find our selves with choices this Sunday: are you going with Christmas II, a rare occurance in the short season of Christmas? OR are you transferring in Epiphany and going with the Magi?
Are you compelled to reflect on Jeremiah's call from tragedy to hope? Or does Sirach's "resting place" speak to you? What about Wisdom on the tongue of infants? Perhaps you are drawn to Ephesians and what we learn about being the Body of Christ from this Pauline letter. And, lastly, if you are going with Christmas II - the beautiful words that open the Gospel of John may call out your poetic self. If you are celebrating Christmas II, where are your thoughts taking you?
And, if you are going with Epiphany, what new light are you shining on the story of the Magi and the Christ child?
Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and join the party - guaranteed to be a day full of ideas, support, feedback, and companionship...It's the best place to be on a Saturday!
