Chalking The Door

Good people of West Parish,

What a joyous Epiphany celebration we had last Sunday!  We “chalked our doors” and blessed our sanctuary. 

It’s not too late for you to bless your own home – here’s a link that gives instructions for this tradition and offers some prayers you can use

And we each chose a “star word” that will guide us through the coming year.   I look forward to hearing how your words unfold for you over 2019!

If you missed receiving a star word and would like one, I will have them with me this Sunday — when we’ll celebrate the Baptism of Christ, reflecting on why Jesus was baptized, and what baptism means for us today.   

Does baptism still matter in our increasingly secular world?   Might we reinvigorate the importance of this sacrament?   See you then!
