Dear Friends in Christ,

Happy New Year!  Sunday is the Epiphany of Our Lord or the "manifestation" of Christ to all nations.  Some Christian traditions celebrate three great epiphanies on this day:  the magi's adoration of the Christ child, Jesus' baptism in the Jordan River, and his first miracle, in which he changes water into wine.  Sometimes it's tricky to 'fit' in all of the great lessons that the Bible teaches us in only 52 Sundays but regardless, we always get a taste of grace and mercy each week and this Sunday our hymns are a reflection of  everything that you could hope to fit in on Epiphany.

If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!
