For Your Reflection:

FIRST SUNDAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

 

Today’s Theme: The psalmist calls on the natural world, celestial bodies, fire and earth, creatures, and all humanity, to praise God.  The voices of Simeon and 84-year-old Anna join the chorus today, recognizing what God is doing in Jesus.  Simeon’s song is often sung after communion, for we have seen God’s salvation in the assembled community and have held Jesus in our hands in the bread.  Then, like the prophet Anna, we tell of Jesus to all who look for the healing of the world.
