WORSHIP SHINE A LITTLE LIGHT Today we conclude our Epiphany worship series, taking a new look at the basics of our faith through the stories of the Gospels. We are rethinking faith this Epiphany season, reimagining what it means to be a person of faith in the world today.

NUMBER YOUR DAYS Next Sunday we begin a new series for Lent when we reexamine the ways we practice our piety. The word pious has a negative connotation, perhaps because so many have practiced their piety in ways Jesus warned against: stewardship for show, prayer for public praise, fasting for facevalue. What if we tried to live a lifetime of storing up real treasures? In each of the Gospel passages a word or phrase of time is mentioned. How do we number our days so we may gain hearts of wisdom? TODAY THE RESTRUCTURING TASK FORCE will offer a presentation on their progress, to the Adult Sunday School class at 9:45 in the Chapel this Sunday. Everyone is welcome to attend to find out more about where we are headed in the next year. MARTHA STEARNS MARSHALL PULPIT EXCHANGE Today we welcome Rev.
