Prayer Before Worship: Almighty God, through Jesus You not only welcome us to Yourself, but You have actively sought us and You rejoice over each person who is brought to trust in Jesus for forgiveness and heaven. Give us Your heart for people that will translate into actively seeking by sharing Your love. Amen.
IN TODAY’S WORSHIP As if the lights are being raised ever-so-gradually in a dark room, this church season of Epiphany sheds a little more light on Jesus and on us. Jesus tells us that we are the “light of the world.” Light shines! The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. We shine the light of Jesus’ truth and love in casual conversations about everyone’s need for grace.
