Sermon preached at the Church of St. Luke & St. Simon Cyrene on the First Sunday after the Epiphany: Isaiah 42:1-9; Acts 10:34-43; Matthew 2:1-12; 3:13-17; John 2:1-11
We have been immersed in our yearly celebration of God coming into the world: Christmas. Today we take the next step. It is our turn. Now we are called to follow God into the world. We are sent. We are people on a mission: Epiphany.
What does it mean that we are sent by God into the world?
What does it mean that we are to proclaim in word and deed the good news of God in Christ?
What does it mean that we, Episcopalians though we are, are called to evangelism?
