Prayers, Readings and Reflections for January 8

Good First Sunday after the Epiphany to you!
I hope you are staying warm and safe.
I’m sorry that the cold and ice precludes our safe gathering this morning, I hope we can connect in the Spirit as we offer prayers at 10 AM wherever we may be.
The Collect for this day is:

Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

To guide you in your prayers this day, I offer the following links:
Morning Prayer Rite One (with more traditional language) can be found here.
Morning Prayer Rite Two (with more contemporary language) can be found here.

The readings for the day can be found here.

Reflections for the day can be found here..
Please join us if you can, next Sunday, January 15, when we resume our regular schedule of 9 AM and 11 AM Holy Eucharist, with Godly Play and a Teachable Moment in the hour in between.
Peace be with you.
