Worship Themes for February

February 7: Last Sunday of Epiphany

Texts: Exodus 34:29-35 & II Corinthians 3:12-4:2

Removing the Veil

Saint Paul uses powerful imagery in his second letter to the Corinthians. He tells them that “where the Spirit is, there is freedom” and God frees us by removing the veil from our eyes so we can see clearly. Today in our sermon we are going to explore how Paul’s powerful words might help us as we prepare for our Lenten journey and focus on our theme of seeing color and reading race in the Bible.

February 14 First Sunday in Lent

Genesis 1 and Genesis 2:7 -14
Texts: Genesis 1 & Genesis 2:7-14

The Color of Origins
Today we will look at the birthplace of humanity according to the Bible—East Africa. The poetry of Genesis imagines that God crafted the first human being from the earth’s dark soil and breathed life into the human. Several rivers flow into the Garden of Eden, one of them is the Gihon river which winds through Ethiopia. Our ancient sacred story imagines the first human beings as dark and brown and beautifully created in the image of God.
