Second Sunday after the Epiphany

Can anything good come from Nazareth?

Nothing in the outward signs indicated the effect that Christ's incarnation would have in the world. The outward means so little because Christ’s salvation is the single individual’s knowing God. Personal knowing is incompatible with domineering manifestations and mass movement. Personal knowing happens in the repetition of meetings around God’s Word (in person or via Zoom) and speaking with one another. The incarnation is God coming to us so that we might come to know Him. As Paul taught, such knowing moves from faith to faith; from one believing single individual to the next. And Peter wrote that salvation advances as a single hopeless individual asks about the hope that sustains the life of the single Christian individual. Personal knowing is another name for love. Love flourishes in the humble, intimate and seemingly unimpressive moments of life as we come to know God's love.

My dear brother/sister,

Because of the more stringent Tier 4 restrictions we can no longer meet together in church for Bible study, but we can carry on with the Service as we have been doing. For the time being, join us for either Bible study at 10 am (via Zoom) or/and the Service at 11am (in church). This Sunday Charles will continue the study he started last Sunday on Romans 6:1-11. He will also preach.

Important. The Congregational Meeting that we were going to have this Sunday is postponed until the 28th of February.

 

Please find the bulletin attached.

When coming to church be mindful of the following:

  • Wear a face mask. Also, you may want to dress warm as we need to keep the windows open.
  • There is a one-way system in place. You will enter the building via the double doors on Westfield Lane and exit through the back door towards Westfield House.
  • Observe the stipulated distance.
  • People from the same household must sit together and children must stay with their parents all the time.
  • We will speak the liturgy and there will be music but no singing. This is due to the risk of transition via droplets of saliva. So, we will follow the lyrics from the hymnal silently.
  • There will be Holy Communion and one pew at a time will be called up. You must not kneel at the rail.

Offerings will not be collected. If you can, continue to give online, at least for the time being. The details will be on the back of the bulletin. Still, you will be able to place your offering in the plate on your way out of the church if you wish. But bear in mind that our treasurer won't be able to record your gift before 72 hours.

I hope you are not discouraged by any of this from coming. This is for the safety of us all and especially the most vulnerable among us. However, do not come if you or someone you live with has any of the symptoms of COVID-19:

  • A new, continuous cough, where you cough a lot for more than an hour, or have three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • Fever - where your temperature is above 37.8C
  • Loss of smell or taste

I look forward to seeing you.

Stay safe and well.

Pastor Jaime
