Book Discussion Group will be reading The Book of Joy by The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu for February.
Horse Power Literacy Program is featured on our Giving Tree.  This unique reading program in Baxter and Marion counties uses horses to inspire children to want to read! The cost for each child is $5.00.  Not only will each child receive a book of their own to keep but they will get to meet the horse characters in their books in person at school!  They also go on a field trip to Stone Creek Ranch to learn all about horses and horse care!  While at the ranch the first graders will read a portion of their book to a very attentive ranch horse.  It is so important to excite children to want to read.  And the horses do just that so well!  Thank you for your support.
** “All matters voted upon at parish meetings and parish elections shall be decided by a majority of the qualified voters present and voting.” Canon 24(5)   In other words, no absentee voting.
 Epiphany Season
A season of four to nine weeks, from the Feast of the Epiphany (Jan. 6) through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The length of the season varies according to the date of Easter. The gospel stories of this season describe various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus. The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Epiphany. The Baptism of our Lord is observed on the Sunday after Epiphany. The gospels for the other Sundays of the Epiphany season describe the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and various miracles and teachings of Jesus. The Last Sunday after the Epiphany is always devoted to the Transfiguration. Jesus’ identity as the Son of God is dramatically revealed in the Transfiguration gospel, as well as the gospel of the baptism of Christ. We are called to respond to Christ in faith through the showings of his divinity recorded in the gospels of the Epiphany season.

Update from the Feast of Epiphany Committee
Feast of the Epiphany night was a huge success.  Guests arrived to a glowing Keller hall and to the gentle jazz of the Coffey/Keuther trio.  All anticipated “moving in to the light” with sparklers and fresh air and upon entering the narthex..the welcoming music from Bill Weeks greeted all as each entered with lighted candle.    Following an inspiring homily by Rev. Anne Carriere the following prayer served to rededicate the stained glass window memorial.
A Stained Glass Window Prayer
O Lord God, the whole world is filled with the radiance of your glory:  Accept our offering of this window which we now dedicate to you for the adornment of this place and the inspiration of your people.  Grant that as the light shines through it in many colors, so our lives may show forth the beauty of your manifold gifts of grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
