This week, St. Paul’s observes “Bold Women’s Day” with the Women of the ELCA across the country. On this day, Jesus continues his “Sermon on the Level Place” with teaching about God’s call to radical love for and service to friends and enemies alike, and a warning against judging others more harshly than oneself. In a world where criticism of others is an industry all its own, the command to examine ourselves and treat others with grace is both challenging and necessary, and obeying that command requires a bold trust in God’s grace for us. Join us this Sunday, February 24, as we ponder what it means to trust boldly in God so that we can live gracefully with others.

Time after the Epiphany: Sunday, January 6 – Tuesday, March 5
January 6 is celebrated throughout the world as the Epiphany of Our Lord. Our English word “epiphany” comes from a Greek word meaning “shining forth” or “appearance”, and (in the Western church, at least) refers to the arrival of the Magi at the home of the infant Jesus, an event by which God’s glory was made known to “the nations”. During the weeks that follow, the church reflects on what it means to live as disciples of Jesus in light of God’s revelation to the whole world. The time after Epiphany varies in length from year to year, running from January 6 until the beginning of Lent, celebrated on Ash Wednesday. This time of growth is signified in the church by the use of the color green.
