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 Paul encouraging us to focus not on ourselves, but seek to exalt Christ in all of our conversations. It is not about us - it is rather about Christ and his reign being exalted and glorified. As we exalt Christ in our difficult conversations, our focus is to explore and do what seeks to honor God.
