The Sixth Sunday after Epiphany
Our gospel reading from Luke this Sunday give us Luke's version of the Beatitudes. Most people are particularly familiar with Matthew's version of this core teaching of Jesus, which is longer and, one might say, more spiritual in nature. Luke presents a shorter version, and he pairs them with a series of "Woes" that Matthew does not include. One could argue that Luke's presentation of the Beatitudes is more down to earth, less easily interpreted as applying to our spiritual lives and more grounded in the realities of the world around us. If Matthew's version of the Beatitudes is more focused on our interior lives, Luke's version might be called the social justice edition of the Beatitudes.
Godly Play continues this Sunday. Children begin in church with their parents, and then go in procession to Trinity Hall for their classes following the first lesson. Parents pick them up after church or, if they prefer, for Communion.
Youth Group will be meet from 6-8 pm this Sunday night in Trinity Hall.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
We have a professionally staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
Sunday mornings are active for children. Children begin the 10 am service each Sunday in church, and then leave in procession after the first reading to gather separately, first to hear the Gospel reading of the day and then to go to their classes. Children's Christian formation includes Godly Play for children age four through fifth grade. Parents can pick up their children from Trinity Hall and bring them into church to receive Communion if they wish, or they may pick up their children after church is over.
