Sermon and Announcements for Jan. 24, 2021

We are now in the season of Epiphany. It began on Jan. 6th “The Feast of the Epiphany” when we celebrate that the Magi arrived and presented gifts to the Christ Child and that the good news that Jesus revealed God to all people.  The word “epiphany” comes from a Greek word meaning, “showing forth, appearance, manifestation, revelation.”  The season of Epiphany will end on Ash Wednesday, February 17 this year. We will then enter the season of Lent.

We continue to gather virtually by Zoom. If you would like to join us on Sunday, send us an email and we’ll send you the link.

Here are the Lessons and Questions for Discussion for January 24, 2021. Please note: These require reading and some preparation prior to Sunday’s Zoom meeting.

THE SHARING CIRCLE is an opportunity for us to share our resources in needs with each other during this pandemic. Olivia Brown is the contact person for the sharing circle.

St. Peters has started a sharing circle during this time of the coronavirus where we can connect parishioners who need things with those who can make them available. For example, if you need transportation, someone to run an errand for you, toilet paper, or advice on how to get something, we can connect you with someone in the parish who will provide those things. If you are in threat of eviction from your home or rental habitat,we would like to know and may be able to provide some assistance. Likewise, if you have something to offer like you can give a ride to someone, pick up groceries, want to host a zoom meeting for a craft activity that can be done while we are shut in, like cooking, baking or book club, feel free to let us know. Deacon Karla Hunt is available for pastoral needs if you would like a phone call to stay in touch, prayers by telephone, or something else. The sharing circle is open to all parishioners. If you’d like to participate with a request or with an offer, please contact Olivia Brown. All REQUESTS ARE CONFIDENTIAL.
