The light of our faith and the enduring hope that we celebrate at this time of year is central to the message this Sunday morning, when we remember the story of Christ’s own baptism–and our own. The signs and symbols of our faith are powerful during Christmas and Epiphany, and we will recall the guiding star that led the Magi even as we celebrate in the liturgy around our sacrament of Communion. With current concerns around increased Covid transmission, we will not be sharing the elements, but you are welcome to bring your own symbol of the bread and cup. Likewise, for the time being we are returning to sharing recorded voices from our choir rather than having live singing. Please let us pray for a return to greater familiarity in worship even as we continue to innovate!
Love and peace to you all, Pastor Lisa
