The Liturgical Season Of Epiphanytide
Adoration of the Three Kings - Flight into Egypt, detail
Epiphanytide: His mission, our mission
the visit of the Magi - the baptism of Jesus - the presentation of Christ - the marriage at Cana - the transfiguration
This year the season starts on January 6th (Epiphany) and ends on February 11th (Shrove Tuesday).
White is the season's colour.
"The visit of the Magi is traditionally interpreted as symbolic of God's revelation of himself to the Gentiles, and so one of the themes of the season is mission."

My dear, dear Family in Christ Jesus,
Adapted from Romans 1:1-7
Timothy, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
To all in St. Peter’s who are loved by God and called to be his holy people:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jane provided these prayers at our Spring conference. 2015
Ask God to bring deep conviction of sin, spiritual brokenness, a holy fear of God and genuine repentance among His people.
2 Corinthians 7:10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.
Pray for a spirit of brokenness and humility to confess sin and disobedience.
Psalm 51:17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.
