During Epiphany we are focusing on Christ being revealed through our lives, our actions. Also, as our community begins a courageous conversation on sexuality and same-gender relationships, we are seeking to discover how this conversation can take place in ways which places Christ first, honors the purposes and mission of God. The theme of Epiphany is to see and reveal the presence of God in the midst of our conversing together with one another - especially as we address these issues from theologically diverse positions.
This Sunday focuses on Jesus' baptism as being baptized in to God's pleasure. The learning we draw from this is that in all we do, and also in how we converse, are we able to do it in such a way that we bring pleasure to God.
