Message from the Rector
We are in Epiphany season! Epiphany means manifestation and is usually celebrated at
the beginning of January in the Western Church. It is understood that epiphany
reminds us that with the birth of the Christ Child, the Messiah, salvation is offered to
all peoples. The gentiles are now included in Gods salvation plan, this is good news for
us. God is no respecter of persons, there is no discrimination levelled at us, except
those that we level at one another.
We are each valued and loved and precious in Gods sight, whoever we are and
whatever we bring, with all our foibles and idiosyncrasies, pains and joys and laughter,
we each are loved and precious in Gods sight because of Christ.
I hope that this will encourage you as you begin a new year. The old has gone, the new
has come. Whatever the past year has held for you, all its joys and sorrows and
everything else in between, this new season beckons us to begin to have hope again
for what is up ahead, and we direct our thoughts towards Easter and the resurrected
life of Christ. This new life in all its fullness which is waiting for us in Christ, ("knock and
the door shall be opened"), is often symbolised by the waters of baptism, cleansing
and making whole. This season that we are moving into is often the time when people
begin to think about being baptised and confirmed, the outward symbol of the inward
change of heart direction. The outward symbol of the inward manifestation of the gift
My prayer for us all at the beginning of this new year is that God will heal your heart
from all that has hurt you in the past, and will soothe you as you mourn for loved ones
or difficult relationships, and that you and I will each be given the grace to fully take
hold of what it means to live the risen life in Christ. The lord bless you and all those
that you pray for and love and care for, now and always. Amen.
Revd Deborah Hamilton-Grey
