“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” -Psalm 27:1
“Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” – Matthew 4:19
“He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?” -Micah 6:8
“You are the salt of the earth [and] you are the light of the world.” -Matthew 5:13-14
These favorite Bible verses are among just a few of the favorites we hear during this season of Epiphany. The Holy Scriptures have a way of speaking to us in ways so relevant to who we are as God’s people. We come, throughout this season, as always, to be refreshed by God’s word, nourished at Christ’s table, and sent out again to be God’s hands and feet in the world.
You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. You are welcome.
We are an international and ecumenical church, coming from many places and Christian backgrounds. Communion is served on the first and third Fridays of each month. All baptized Christians are welcome at Christ’s table.
Come, you who hunger for justice. Come feast on God’s promise to feed the hungry, lift up the lowly, and set the captive free.
Come, you who thirst for mercy. Come drink from the water of life, God’s power to pardon, strengthen, and heal.
Come, you who long for peace among nations and between peoples, peace in our homes and our hearts.
Come, all who are weary and heavy laden. Come to the river of life, lay down your burdens, and pour out your prayers before the throne of the Lamb.
-From “For the Healing of the Nations,” Holden Prayer Around the Cross
