This weekend we celebrate Epiphany - the time when we recall the journey of the magi who followed a star all the way to the place where Jesus was. We remember the extravagant joy they had when they got there, how they worshipped Jesus when they saw him, and how they gave generous gifts as part of their worship.


Epiphany reminds us that Jesus is the light of the world, and that his birth and life really is good news for all people. This Sunday morning, we will be thinking about what it means for us that Jesus is the light of the world.


This Sunday also marks the beginning of our 28-day prayer initiative: Dynamite Prayer. Throughout the remainder of January, we are inviting you to join with the United Methodists of the northeast district in Florida as we complete a short daily devotional and listen for the voice of God's spirit together.


Here at Memorial, we will have a couple of points during each week at which you can gather with one another to share your Dynamite Prayer journey insights and reflections. On Wednesday nights at 6:00PM in the Multipurpose Room (and online) I will lead a dynamite prayer check in time. I’d love to see you there. But if you can't make that gathering, Pastor Rachel will be doing a similar thing with our Thursday Lunch and Learn group. They meet in the multipurpose room at 11:30AM every Thursday.


This is an exciting season of prayer for Memorial and for our district. Let's dive in, take advantage of the Dynamite Prayer resource, and see where God's Spirit leads us.


Pastor Charlie
