Getting Ready for Sunday | 01/20/2019

We will gather together again on Sunday, January 20th at 4pm for the Holy Eucharist. This Sunday we continue our walk through the season of Epiphany and look at how it is that the local church lives out the saving mission of Jesus Christ.

"It is to be expected that many are puzzled as to why exactly it is that suffering should bring about redemption. Our understanding of this mysterious correspondence can be helped along, I think, if we expand the meaning of suffering from simply 'undergoing pain' to include 'the willing activation of all the passions of the soul', intended to put love in the place of the beloved’s refusal to love. Christ redeems us because he passionately embraces our rejection of him with a love unto death, and he will not let go of us."
