Taking time to listen and then respond
At Epiphany we are constantly asking: What is God doing in the world? Clarity comes from gathering, from time to time, to consider what is going on in our world, and what God might be doing to inspire us to be God’s active agents in care or change or reconciliation. Sometimes these are single conversations. Other times a small group or several small groups will convene. Sometimes we invite in outside subject experts to help us more thoroughly engage the topic at hand. These are all ways in which we seek to hear God’s call upon this community and to respond accordingly.

Make no mistake about it, you were made for the Great Time-In. You were created to be part of the generation of people who said: “we see, and we will put our shoulders to the wheel of justice, to ensure that the field of freedom and equality has workers in this city and nation, for all people, and for God’s glory.” To step more deeply into this ongoing conversation, click here.
