Epiphany Worship Series "Growing in Gratitude"
Epiphany closes out the Advent/Christmas season with the story of the Wise Men/Magi visiting and worshipping the baby Jesus. Either through discipline, commitment, or simple curiosity they followed the star to honor him and offer their gifts. These outsiders and their entourage were changed after encountering Jesus. It is said that they returned a different way home; partly because of concern from Herod, but mainly because they experienced the world in a different way. They now saw the world through Jesus. Have you ever wondered how their lives were different?
After we put our Christmas decorations away, close out another year, and return to our normal routine; we too may ask whether we have experienced change through the wonder of the presence of Jesus? The Epiphany Sermon series, “Growing in Gratitude”, will guide us to examine our lives and prepare us to be followers of Christ. Come worship, stay learn, go serve.
