Sunday Prayers for February 14th – Last Sunday after the Epiphany

Sunday prayers will be live-streamed to our parish Facebook page. Our music director will offer about ten minutes of music to assist our preparation, and the prayers will begin at 9:30.

You can participate and follow along using the order of service which can be found here.

Here’s what Sundays and Seasons offers as context for this final Sunday after the Epiphany:

The Sundays after Epiphany began with Jesus’ baptism and end with three disciples’ vision of his transfiguration. In Mark’s story of Jesus’ baptism, apparently only Jesus sees the Spirit descending and hears the words from heaven. But now Jesus’ three closest friends hear the same words naming him God’s Beloved. As believers, Paul writes, we are enabled to see the God-light in Jesus’ face, because the same God who created light in the first place has shone in our hearts to give us that vision. The light of God’s glory in Jesus has enlightened us through baptism and shines in us also for others to see.
