Bible readings January 2020

Here are the Bible readings for January 2020 which we’ll be using in church for this season of Epiphany.

If you want to read up in advance – or if you can’t be with us and want to follow the same readings – then here you go!

The scriptures this month include travelling wise men, a baptism, disciples being called – and people that had been in darkness now seeing a great light.

Christmas Star

We can learn that each of us has something to offer in service to progress God’s kingdom. It may not be immediately apparent; it may be hidden beneath the surface; but there will be something to offer in each one of us.

Maybe, like Joseph, a word from God will come to us and it will make us change our view on something; change our mind on a particular course of action; give us a new and different outlook.

The body language of God

As the Word made flesh and dwelling among us, Jesus physically demonstrated the continuity of God, his unchanging love and mercy that we can always count upon.

But he also showed us the God of surprises too. He changed what we thought about God and challenged the pre-conceived ideas that he came across in both society and religion.

In physical, bodily form – as the body language of God – Jesus re-imagined God for us.

My time is in your hands

Our next Sunday@Seven service is December 29th in the hall at Christ Church Walmersley. The theme is ‘My time is in your hands’, which is taken from Psalm 31.

Sunday@Seven is an opportunity to sing and pray in a more informal setting than the usual Sunday and weekday church services. It’s led by Nigel Silvester, our Authorised Lay Minister and Cath Hilton.
