ear St. John’s,

"Surprise is the theme of Epiphany: the surprise of the magi to see a star rise in the east, their surprise to find the babe in a manger in a cattle shed, the surprise of Herod to find the magi "went home be another way," and so on. That said, we also anticipate the delightful surprise of a whole new pastoral relationship as we welcome our Interim Pastor in the weeks to come. (And if we are surprised and this doesn’t happen for some reason, well, surprise is a theme of Epiphany: the surprise of the magi to see a star rise in the east, their surprise to find the babe in a manger in a cattle shed, the surprise of Herod to find the magi “went home by another way,” and so on. That said, we anticipate the delightful surprise of a whole new pastoral relationship!) As we enter this time of transition, it’s good to remember that life itself — breathing in, breathing out — is transition, as we receive from the air what we need, use it to heal and grow, and return the rest to the world. In that breath is God (Genesis 2.7), and with that breath and the strength it gives, we have every opportunity to speak God’s word and to do God’s work. “For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life” (Ephesians 2.10).

I’ll say more in a Worship Theme article, but Epiphany is an especially good for transition, as the scripture is all about who Christ is, who we are as his church, and how he transforms us to be like him. It is an especially good time to worship weekly, join a Sunday school class, and serve together in the community. Jesus is always with us, whatever we do or choose, but he promises to be with us as we meet in his name (worship, study, and friendship) and in the least of those who need us (giving and serving). That’s where the star of Christ shines most brightly. This Epiphany, let’s follow the wise men to where Christ promises to be. With our new pastor, with each other, and with Christ, let’s be surprised by the transformation of new relationship! Your brother in Christ,

s the Church Council negotiates plans for our Interim Pastor, we continue to invest our time, talent, and treasure in the ministries of St. John’s. Thank you to the countless folks who have shared radical hospitality, led passionate worship, invested in intentional faith formation, participated in risktaking mission, and offered extravagant generosity. No doubt, God celebrates each of you with these words: “Well done, good and faithful servant!” We are now turning toward a new year, complete with exciting opportunities to take “One Step Up.” The basic idea behind this initiative is to consider your current involvement and then devote your passions and gifts to one new expression of ministry. Check out the opportunities below: Welcome … greet those you don’t know with a smile and an extended hand, ask visitors to join you at First Sunday brunch, introduce new members to longtime members, invite a visitor to lunch after church, volunteer to make follow-up phone calls to visitors, and send a note of welcome to visitors. Worship … prepare the sanctuary for worship, set communion greet worshippers, usher, read lessons, sing in the choir, play an instrument, administer communion, plan seasonal worship, join the students at Tyson House for dinner and worship at 6:04 on Sundays. Learn … share Bible stories and plan crafts with children, support faith sharing with teenagers, facilitate conversation with adults, participate in book groups, consider a Lenten discipline, and prepare for weekly wrship through daily devotions. Serve … worship with our neighbors at Highways and Byways, cook and serve with the Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) Feeding Team, bake bread and share lunch with our neighbors at Minvilla, mentor with Kids Hope USA at Christenberry Elementary, provide tender loving care for a homeless family through International Hospitality Network, support the teaching ministry of Confirmation, bake a cake for a TLC meal, volunteer to serve as a youth group advisor, show up and talk to a teenager at WOW this summer, and answer phones and coordinate tasks in the church office. Invest … consider including St. John’s in your estate planning, sign up for automatic withdrawal for your tithe, invest in our seminarians through the St. John’s Fund for Leaders in Mission, and plan your sacrificial giving. Lead … identify your passion and spiritual gifts and then brainstorm new ministries you can initiate! God is up to something really good in and through he St. John’s family; let’s step up! Faithfully,

WORSHIP

Worship Themes: Healing, Unity, and Transformation!

E

piphany (January 6) is about the light of Christ (the star that led magi to the manger) and the healing of relationship that comes from following that light (magi — Gentiles, outsiders — becoming helpers, fulfilling Isaiah’s vision, “Nations shall come to your light… They shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord,” Isaiah 60:3, 6). The holy family flees to Egypt to escape Herod’s wrath, and the gifts from the magi fund their journey. Carrying this theme forward, in Ephesians Paul says his imprisonment is for Christ’s sake, enabling him to proclaim God’s love to Gentiles. Now, as we worship, we follow the light of Christ too, bringing our gifts to help and heal the world. Baptism of Our Lord (January 13) celebrates God’s unity with us. As God comes to us in the infant Christ at Christmas, the grown Jesus comes to us in the waters of baptism. As Jesus is baptized, the Spirit descends and a voice from heaven says, “You are my son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” In Acts, as Peter and John pray and lay hands on recently baptized Christians, the Spirit comes to them too. When we baptize, we lay hands too, saying, “Child of God, you have been marked with the cross and sealed by the Holy Spirit forever!” The laying on of hands also comes in day-to-day moments, as we pat a shoulder giving comfort or steady an arm to help someone up a step. The Spirit is with us in our unity with one another. The next six Sundays (January 20, 27, February 3, 10, 17, 24) focus on who Jesus is and how this transforms us to be his church. Jesus blesses water to become wine, and the Spirit blesses us with gifts for ministry. Jesus proclaims his mission to to the poor, and we become his body to do the same. Transfiguration of Our Lord (March 3) brings all these themes to a head as Jesus leads James, John, and Peter to a mountain to pray, is bathed in light, walks and speaks with Moses and Elijah, and again is acclaimed by a voice from heaven, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” I mentioned in the lead article that Epiphany is a good season for transition. It really is. As we discern our call as a congregation and what leadership we need to further our mission, the most important thing we can do is worship. As we worship, the Spirit forms us in God’s helping and healing image. From that center, all else will be provided.

O

ur congregation is absolutely amazing. I would like to warmly thank each and every person who worked on Pastor Steve and Jeanne’s celebration weekend events. Huge thanks to the many, many hands who donated an abundance of food and the many, many hands who helped prepared and serve it. Our December First Sunday Brunch was indeed a loaves and fishes kind-of day. Expecting 150 people, we served 245! We scrambled 24 dozen eggs, served a MOUNTAIN of pastries, a multitude of hash brown casseroles, bunches of French toast casseroles, TONS & TONS of fruit, and many, many cups of yogurt parfaits. What a beautiful bounty to share with our entire church community (we will continue to enjoy some of the food at our First Sunday Brunch in January—you were SO generous!). Special thanks to Ruth Crowley and her team who did a phenomenal job decorating the Sparks Fellowship Hall. It looked absolutely beautiful! And special thanks to Clarke Hinkle who created a beautiful Friday reception honoring Pastor Steve and co-chaired the bountiful Sunday Brunch. Please join us for First Sunday Brunch on January 6th and February 3rd. It is a wonderful time to share great food and fellowship with members of our church family. Lenten Suppers will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 6th and will be every Wednesday through Lent. Nancy Maland

L

ife events like death of a loved one, diagnosis of a disease, or the end of an important relationship are emotionally challenging. No one has to navigate these challenges alone. That’s why St. John’s has been a Stephen Ministry congregation since 2005. Stephen Ministers are trained lay caregivers who walk sideby-side with people who might need a little help. The Stephen Leaders at St. John’s feel God is calling us to find additional men and women in our congregation who are willing to answer Christ’s call to serve as Stephen Ministers, beginning with 50 hours of stimulating and useful training in Christian caring skills. This time of continuing education, led by trained Stephen Leaders, will include a variety of topics such as listening, Christian assertiveness, maintaining boundaries in caregiving, and grief. The training is distinctively Christian and focuses on God as the one who cures as we care. When the Stephen Ministers have completed their training, the St. John‘s family will commission them, and they will be ready to begin their ministry. Working within the supportive boundaries of peer supervision, these Stephen Ministers will be available to meet weekly with persons experiencing challenges such as bereavement, single parenting, job loss, terminal illness, long-term hospitalization, and natural disasters. Stephen Ministers commit to at least two years for training, service, and regular supervision. Drawing from the experience of those we met during our Stephen Leader training, we know many Stephen Ministers enjoy their ministry so much they choose to serve beyond the two years. Stephen Minister Training will begin Sunday, January 6 and run through mid-May with breaks for Holy Week and Mother’s Day. If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, please reach out to Pastor Amy at amy@sjlcknox.org, Pat Krogmann at boomboomgolfpk@hotmail.com or Michael Holtz at michael@envirolutionary.com.
