This first Sunday is Epiphany, the day we celebrate the arrival of the Wise Men from the East who came to find the newly-born king of Israel, whose star they had seen at its rising. The Wise Men had such a profound experience, they changed their plans and did not return to King Herod as originally planned.
This Sunday is also the first Sunday of 2019, and a new year brings fresh opportunities and a natural time to rededicate ourselves to the work of the Lord. This Sunday we will again have the opportunity to meet the Lord and be changed for the better. We will have the chance to renew our covenant with God as we again use the Wesleyan Covenant Service and celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion.
See you Sunday.
Grace & Peace,
