January 4, 2011 I realize that Epiphany is most properly celebrated on January 6 but I am going to divert from the Lectionary very slightly and address Epiphany this Sunday. It isn’t the first time I have done something of this nature and I’ve never gotten into too much trouble before. I am very much looking forward to looking at the texts for this Sunday in light of our responsibilities toward our Saviour.
January 11, 2011 Well, last Sunday was one of the few Sundays that weather conditions have prevented me from making it to church to preach. That being said, I would like to pass on my thanks to both congregations for helping me make the best choice, the safest choice.
It may seem odd but we are going to stay with Epiphany for the Sunday coming up. We will be even more out of step with the Lectionary but we tend to miss Epiphany except for those rare years where it falls exactly on a Sunday. I am not trying to get out of the work of preparing by any means but rather looking forward to (re)visiting one of the high holy days in the church calendar, one that is often missed. I am looking forward to next Sunday and trusting that the weather will cooperate.
