Blessing our home is another way to bless and thank God for the gift of a home while engaging and honoring the ways we practice our faith in house: chores and hobbies, cooking and eating, ways of relaxing, relationships within the household and beyond it, caring for our bodies, connecting with the creation. Early this Epiphany season, gather with your friends and family members and use the brief order provided at the back of the church.
You are encouraged to use the chalk included to add a visual blessing around the main door of your home. 20 + CMB + 19. The numbers change with each new year. The three letters stand for either the ancient Latin blessing Christe mansionem benedicat, which means, “Christ, bless this house,” or the legendary names of the magi (Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar). Handouts are available at the back of the church.
