Join us at Summit on 16th this January and February as we explore the season of EPIPHANY. The word Epiphany means "new insight or revelation." It is an "A-Ha" Moment when things become clear and make sense in a way that they never have before.
From the beginning to the end, the Bible is filled with a witness of a people who had remarkable EPIPHANIES around their understanding of God, and who chose to write them down and share them with their community.
Time, distance, changes in culture, and familiarity with Biblical Stories has sometimes meant that we have lost sight of the remarkable power and radical nature of these stories. The Bible and its stories have changed things in our human history in ways that are hard to fully understand. And they have introduced key ideas about God that should still be changing our lives today.
So, this Epiphany season (which begins on January 4th with the story of the Magi who followed the star to Bethlehem) - we are going to immerse ourselves in these stories and we are going to listen for the fresh insights, revelations, and epiphanies that God is still speaking to us.
During February, we will have a special emphasis on BLACK HISTORY MONTH - and look at the stories in Scripture particularly interested in speaking epiphanies in the area of injustice and oppression.
This is a great season to invite your friends.
