Pastor’s Message

February 2019

Epiphany continues! The church season of Epiphany comes between Christmas and Lent. The gospel readings for the Sundays of January and February are about Jesus making himself known first to his disciples then to the crowds and then to all the people. My questions for you are: How has Jesus made himself known to you? Have you had an epiphany recently? Have you had a conversion experience recently?

You see, I don’t think we just have one in our lives, I think we can have multiple conversion experiences as we grow deeper in our knowledge of divine grace. How have you experienced grace? What have you learned about the Divine? All these questions are getting at the same thing, namely our relationship with God. So, I would like to hear from you.

During this Epiphany season, share with me, and/or with the congregation, your most recent or your most profound epiphany, revelation, conversion experience, whatever you want to call it. And it does not have to be cataclysmic, or earth shattering, it can be a very every-day realization that comes to you in the shower. But I want to know:  How has the risen Christ affected you and your life?

Send me an email, write a newsletter article, give a talk during a worship service, speak at the Sunday morning Adult Ed class, send me a letter, or just talk to me. Let me enjoy hearing about how God has been at work among God’s faithful people. If our mission is Connecting People to God, then it is good to know how we, ourselves are connected in the first place. I hope to hear from you.

God’s Shalom be with you,

Pr . Bob Albing
