Sunday, January 5
Within the gospel reading’s profound words lies the simple message that God is revealed in a human person. Though we may try to understand how the Word existed with God from the beginning of time, the wonder we celebrate at Christmas is that the Word continues to dwell among us. Christ comes among us in the gathered assembly, the scriptures, the waters of new birth, and the bread and the wine. Through these ordinary gifts we receive the fullness of God’s grace and truth.
Christmas is over! The new year has arrived. What do we have to look forward to? Taxes?-NO-LENT-.Which leads us to thinking about our annual Lenten Devotional. We have 47 spaces to fill. Put your thinking caps on and write your devotional now. FYI-if you use any previously printed picture or writing, please include the copyright permission information. Looking forward to everyone’s awesome input. Deadline is February 9.
Sunday, January 5, the Wired Word adult Sunday school at POPLC will resume. Coffee will be made. – Claudia
