This coming Sunday is known in the Christian lectionary simply as “the first Sunday after Christmas day.” Friends in the UK and elsewhere call the 26th Boxing Day. Maybe for you and your family it equates with a peaceful lethargy of sorts, with holiday energy spent. I have learned in the past twenty or so years to be grateful for the seasons I now know to call “tides.” So, we are in Christmastide, a season that does not end with the last of presents unwrapped or even the setting of the sun on the 25th. We celebrate the birth of light and life, of God’s love present in new ways, and we do so even after “the twelve days of Christmas” that lead us to Epiphany. Our worship this Sunday will involve reflecting on the stories we hear and the stories we tell about the mysteries of Christmas. Join us in the warmth of community, united in faith and hope.
Love and peace to you all, Pastor Lisa
