Dear <<First Name>>,
Happy New Year! Happy 10th Day of Christmas!
Sunday will be Epiphany or Three Kings Day, the final day of the Christmas season. We will mark the day with communion, and our third year of Star Gifts, simple paper stars with a word for contemplation for 2019. Each person receives a different word, and an invitation to pray and meditate on it for the year. Then after worship, we will do the most traditional thing of all: take down the Christmas tree! We could use your help.
I am fascinated by the journey of these visitors from the East. They are described as wise ones, because they had knowledge of the stars, but also wisdom to worship the infant Christ. They are also courageous--not just for the journey, but because they did not return to Herod as promised.
Wisdom and courage seem like two values urgently needed in the world today, and dependent upon one another. Join us to be strengthened and encouraged in your own search for wisdom and courage.
