St. Andrew’s is offering several faith formation opportunities virtually since we cannot meet in person at this time.
Epiphany Bible Study: The Three Women Magi
Come explore the themes of Epiphany on Wednesdays at 11am beginning Jan 6, 2021 continuing thru Feb 3, 2021, in our Epiphany Bible Study. Come travel with us as the three Women Magi. Explore the meaning of this part of the church year. The class includes walking a finger Labyrinth that ties into what Bible Verse was discussed in each class. The facilitator is Rev. Pat Eustis, a retired clergy and new St. Andrew’s parishioner, Donna Hawkins is the Labyrinth Facilitator, and Br Stephan Gerhardt managing Zoom. Contact Br. Stephan Gerhardt directly at email@example.com to sign up.
STAR WORDS are back!
In this new year and this season after the Epiphany, as we discern those things that we want to lay at Jesus’ feet, like the magi – I (Mo. Danáe) want to gift you with your own star to follow as you go home another way, so-to-speak, on the road to where God is beckoning you. During the Epiphany Compline service reflection time on January 6, I prayed over and blessed our “star words” – one word on each star that you can use as a spiritual focus for 2021. If you would like me to pull a star word for you, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15.
I trust the Holy Spirit to move when I select a star at random for you. Once your star is chosen (or chooses you, as the Spirit would have it), write the word down at home and put it in a place where you can refer to it throughout the year—your refrigerator door, on a mirror, on your computer screen, in your prayer book or Bible, or whatever works. Look up its definition and see what strikes you. Notice your word in places and in conversations throughout the year. As you continue to reflect, it becomes a year-long conversation with God. If you are social media inclined, you can post about your star word throughout the year with the hashtag #standrewsseattlestarword. I hope this conversation with God on your journey of following the star will deepen your faith and bring you meaning this year.
