A Message from The Reverend Doyt
At Epiphany, it is our duty and privilege to acknowledge God in a way that reveals God’s grace and the subsequent joy it engenders. And so, it is in the spirit of a world deeply in need of joy that I ask you to generously contribute to this year’s Annual Appeal. Take inventory of what is important to you; assess what God is doing in your life; count your blessings; then, in response to this discernment, give in proportion to what God has done and is doing in your life. Be wildly generous if you can, but at the very least, be faithful in reflecting your connection to the important work that happens at your church. Every single pledge matters.
2022 will be about engagement and vitality. It will be about carrying the Epiphany message into conversation with friends, neighbors, and family members; reminding them of a Christianity committed to unity and health—personally, communally, and environmentally—as well as service to those in need. To know unity sometimes requires reconciliation, and that too may be a conversation we are more broadly called to step into. But at the core of care and activism and reconciliation is worship. Worship has always been our core calling and remains so. Yes, we believe there is a God, and worship is a most reasonable response.
I give thanks to God for your connection to Epiphany Parish and the manner by which God has called us together to worship God and serve this community as stewards of God’s Kingdom. Thank you for calling Epiphany your spiritual home and for contributing to our continued vitality as a spiritual center of gravity for the city of Seattle.
Peace upon your souls,
