Dear Church Family
“We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
Tomorrow is the feast of the Epiphany when we look together at the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus. They bring their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to present to him.
I wonder what you got for Christmas gifts this year? I can probably make a good guess that it wasn’t frankincense or myrrh, although perhaps someone got something gold, but if you got something interesting, odd or unusual for Christmas, I’d love you to bring it with you to tomorrow’s service at St Columba to show us all as we talk about gifts! We’re meeting at 10:30am as normal and if you’re unable to be there you can see it live on YouTube or catch up later using this link – https://youtu.be/iIBl3VXqBpg
Our prayer meeting is also back tomorrow at 6pm, we’ll be praying for the year ahead, it would be great to see you there.
