This Week’s Bulletin – January 14th, 2018

The Second Sunday after Epiphany

“Come and See”

Just three weeks ago we were celebrating the birth of Jesus, a week later his Naming, and last week his baptism. Today, on this Second Sunday after Epiphany, his public ministry is inaugurated with this most gracious of all invitations: “Come and see.” It’s an invitation to relationship with God and each other, and to fullness of life. It’s invitation that is personal and one that we are invited to extend to others. It’s an invitation to ministry and mission, to explore the ways of faith and how we give practical expression to what we have seen and the One we have come to know and love, as God loves us.

Third Sunday Outreach

Next Sunday is our monthly opportunity to reach out to the homeless and hungry with a gift of hard-boiled eggs. Please bring as many hard-boiled eggs as you can manage for the Feed My Sheep feeding program in down-town Miami, and leave them in the crate at the back of church – and thank you!

Seraphic Fire

Next Sunday, 21st January, at 4.00pm, here at All Soul’s: The Little Match Girl Passion, David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, opens Seraphic Fire’s three-part Parables of Passion series. “Poignant” and “consoling” (The New York Times), this haunting setting of the Hans Christian Andersen tale is spoken much in the manner of a classic Bach passion. For more information and tickets check the website seraphicfire.org

Hospitality

If your surname begins with M-R, a reminder that there’s an opportunity for you to provide for our hospitality next Sunday. Please check with Joyce Foreman this morning and let her know what you are able to bring to the table.

Almighty God, you have given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech you that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your favor and glad to do your will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in your Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to your law, we may show forth your praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in you to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
