Epiphany January 6, 2021

Friends, as I write this, the Capitol is being stormed by protestors, and the world is scary. I offer this prayer from our hymnal, as I have no words. – Anita

Eternal God, amid all the turmoil and changes of the world, your love is steadfast, and your strength never fails. You have bound us in a common life. In this time of danger and trouble, be to us a sure guardian and rock of defense. Guide the leaders of our nation with your wisdom, comfort those in distress, and grant us courage and hope to face the future; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, Amen

Wednesday Music Meditation

Hello Trinity Family,
Today marks the feast of the Epiphany. Usually we celebrate this day with the same sort of child-like wonder we had at Christmas. However, as I write this email, the Capitol is being stormed by protesters. The news reminds us that following the Christmas star is often scarier and more challenging than we anticipate. Please stay safe and pray for our community.
For my Epiphany meditation, I offer “We Three Kings”. The link to the video is HERE.

Here is the hymn text for your reflection.
Oh, star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Blessings,
Angela
