Merry Christmas! Don’t forget that Christmas lasts until Jan. 6th, so don’t take down those trees yet (unless they are all dried out and hazardous). Anyway, on Christmas 1, we Episcopalians veer a little off the Revised Common Lectionary and read from the Gospel of John. This is John’s version of the birth of Christ, but you will notice that Jesus isn’t in the story, in a physical way anyway. John talks more about the meaning behind the birth of Jesus, His incarnation, and how we are suppoesd to react. Check it out:
Text: John 1:1-18
Next Sunday, Jan. 7th, the Bishop is coming to visit St. Anne’s, so no sermon from me, but I’m sure it will be an awesome day!
Thanks for stopping by,
