Third Sunday After Epiphany
Scripture includes: Psalm 27:1,4-9 and Isaiah 9:1-4
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Deep Darkness”
Many Christians don’t want to talk about it, but no matter how pious we may be, we will face seasons of deep darkness in our lives. I’m not talking about the occasional sadness, but those weeks or months or years where we confront crippling depression, grief, or despair. Perhaps you’re in such a season; I have been. Perhaps you know someone in such a season. Gratefully, our scriptures speak directly to the kind of deep darkness humanity faces, and offers us light and strength to live through it.
Today is the Third Sunday After Epiphany in the Christian year. Epiphany (January 6) celebrates the manifestation of God in Jesus Christ. The Season of Epiphany continues this emphasis, calling attention to the words and deeds of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The liturgical color for the season is green, representing new life and growth.
