Happy Epiphany!

  • LENTEN POP-UP PLANNING!! Join Maddy Lawrence and Rev. Emily Meyer for a mother-daughter, tradition-transformation, how-do-we-‘do’-Lent-this-year? conversation. Bring your planning team, questions, challenges, and hopes – and leave with sermon prompts, hymn suggestions, liturgical elements, educational approaches, multi- and intergenerational ideas, and a theme specific to your context. Learn more and register for the zoom link here.
  • Our New Year’s Newsletter is now available – with our gratitude for all the innovation we were able to witness and support and great hope for 2023. Read it here.
  • Epiphany’s Midweek Retreats are a series of embodied practices, based on excerpts from RCL texts for the following Sunday – suitable for personal and congregational sharing. Learn more here.
  • Thanks to congregational photos from around the sate, a lovely score from Julia Bloom, and reading from Gigi Calland (age 11; Duluth), our Psalm 148 Video Reflection is beautiful. Share it as a sermon anytime during this Season after Epiphany. Learn more here.
