Sunday, February 19, 9:30am
St. James’ Epispocal Church, Dexter
On Sunday, February 19 the Elm Ensemble will assist in Sunday morning worship service at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Dexter as they celebrate the Time after Epiphany.
The seasons around the Epiphany are a time to hear and meditate on the stories of Jesus’ life here on earth—his birth as a vulnerable human child, his intense adulthood, and his death at the hands of religion and empire. When our scandalously human God encounters our all-too-human selves, we have the opportunity to see our sins more clearly, to repent, and to live out our Christian callings with renewed hope and joy.
