The day of Epiphany is a day of paradoxes. It is a celebration of home and yet it is all about travel: the Magi’s pilgrimage to Bethlehem, and Jesus and his parents’ flight for their lives. Although it is (in the western Christian tradition) the twelfth day of Christmas, it is about gifts, not that we receive, but that we bear and bestow on others. Let’s begin the new year with a reflection on this ancient holiday and what it tells us about home and belonging.
Karen Mueller will speak in both services about Parents Helping Parents and the entire offering collection that day will be donated to them. If you miss the service on Jan 5, you may make a donation at the Action Council table on any Sunday in January or in the office. Please make checks payable to UUCPA and put “Justice Partner” in the memo line. UUCPA is proud to support such a valuable community organization.
Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
Special music: Mayan Dolev, classical guitar
