St. Thomas Lutheran Church
January 6th marks the Feast of the Epiphany. On this day the Church celebrates the revelation of Christ to all nations. This feast reminds us that the light of Christ shatters not only our darkness, but bursts forth, permeating throughout the world; revealing the mystery of God’s plan of salvation for all people. It is customary, during the weeks of this season, to offer house blessings. This year, we will do the same for our house of worship and service here at St. Thomas.
In the meantime, let us pray: O God, you revealed your Son to all people by the shining light of a star. We pray that you bless all who worship and serve at St. Thomas with your gracious presence. May your love be our inspiration, your wisdom our guide, your truth our light, and your peace our benediction.
Christ, bless this house and remain with us throughout the New Year. A blessed and bright Epiphany!
Following the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, January 26th, we will move throughout this house of worship and service, praying God’s blessing upon our ministry and mission. We will remember that, within the walls of this house, hospitality to the outsider is offered, fellowship with one another is shared, a variety of ministry occurs and LOVE permeates as the light of our faith shines in all that we say and do. As is often the case in private homes, we’ll finish by sharing a pot-luck meal together. I certainly hope you’ll join us for the special event.
The Rev. Wynemah Hinlicky
