Third Sunday in Epiphany

This morning's sermon considers Jesus' words in the synagogue of Nazareth, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
(Luke 4:18-19 ESV)

Epiphany Sunday

This Sunday we remember the Journey of the Magi in Matthew 2:1-12.

The human race was living in thick darkness, in the darkness of the shadow of death itself. We were lost. Not sure where we were or who we were or where we were headed. But suddenly in the darkness a light began to glow. A warm light. A welcoming light. The light from the door that flung open to our true home. And suddenly we knew who we were and where we belonged.
