Happy New Year, RevGals & Pals!
My new year began with a delightful two days of Christmas Vacation Bible School. Our congregation is one of several churches that come together to offer VBS twice a year, and Christmas vacation is the winter session. With two days of VBS, there is only the first day and the last day, and that’s it!
In New Orleans, Epiphany is the beginning of King Cake season which leads into the Carnival season, commonly called “Mardi Gras.” There will be king cake this week at our church’s after-worship fellowship. How will your congregation celebrate Epiphany? Or will you go with another worship emphasis?
RevGal Marci Glass has started a Star Word tradition in her congregation. If you are looking for an idea that can be used a lot of different ways, check it out.
Whether you are gazing at stars or Kings or Christmas 2 or the Narrative Lectionary, you will find company here as you do sermon prep, attend to worship details or just give it all a second look. Looking for sermon readers? We can do that, too.
The coffee is always hot and Fair Trade. Let’s share snacks, stories, illustrations and prayer requests. I’d love to meet some new friends in this new year, so if you are typically a lurker, you are most cordially invited to let us know you are here.
Make yourself at home. If you don’t see what you need, just ask.
WELCOME, one and all! Let the party begin!
