Sunday, January 30, 2022 Fourth Sunday after Epiphany
10:00 am – Worship with Holy Communion
Love, love, love, sweet love… Jesus’ church in Nazareth and St. Paul’s church in Corinth thought they had a lot of it, but both churches defined Christian love as being mainly for others like them. And they thought God should share their preferences. And Jesus found out you can’t go home again. Nevertheless, God is faithful from our “borning cry” till “we shut our weary eyes.” Meanwhile, in this life we seek to “walk as a child of the light” in love, even for our enemies.
We give thanks for those assisting with Sunday's worship . . .

Death of an Advent Member
