February 14. Join us as we celebrate the last Sunday of Epiphany and the transfiguration of Jesus. Readings for this service will include a passage from Paul’s letters to the Corinthians and the Gospel of Mark, as well as an excerpt from the poem “The Ponds” by Mary Oliver. The sermon by Pastor Lucozzi is entitled “Transfiguration: When the Light Comes Out.” Music under the direction of Andy Davis includes two anthems “Shine, Jesus, Shine” words and music by Graham Kendrick and “Siyahamba”, a South African Freedom Song. Our hymns for this Sunday include “We Have Come at Christ’s Own Bidding,” words by Carl P. Daw and music by Rowland H. Pritchard and “Arise, Your Light Has Come”, words by Ruth Duck and music by William H. Walter. There is also a special children’s hymn for Valentine’s Day called “Planting Seeds of Love in Our Hearts”, words and music by Pam Donkin, arr. by Andy Davis. Sung by Robin, Emma and Andy Davis. The children’s story for our service is Red: “A Crayon’s Story” by Michael Hall. Prayers and concerns for the world and our time are also a regular part of our time together. Everyone is welcome.
