Epiphany 2019: Light of a Star (pdf) (2018)


The season of Epiphany is full of wonderful stories and psalms and even laws that help us learn about Jesus. The first story tells us about the Wise Ones who knew the world needed God’s love. They found Jesus, the Light of the World, under the star. The journey of the Wise Ones and the machinations of a despot king make us think of those who are on the move because of injustice, seeking shelter, seeking work, seeking a better life. Migrant workers are ever hopeful when they land on Canadian soil. Can we nurture communities that embrace these seekers? We find wisdom in the stories of the Israelites coming together after Babylonian exile and the Corinthians striving to be a community despite insurmountable differences.


Based on the Year C Lectionary Readings for the entire Season of Epiphany 2019

Use in your own church or gather your neighbours for an ecumenical community worship service.

New this year, the Migrant Justice content with stories, background and action suggestions is organized into bulletin inserts to use in your congregation or at other events.
