Second Sunday After The Epiphany

 

Collect of the Day – Almighty and everlasting God, who governs all things in heaven and on earth, mercifully hear the prayers of Your people and grant us Your peace through all our days; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

The First Quarterly Voter’s Meeting  will be held today following the service.

 

Year End Articles for the Annual Report – Remember to get your year-end articles for the Annual Report in to me. Please, send them to churchoffice@stjohnsburt.org or hand them in to the office as soon as possible. 

 

Altar Guild will meet following the Voter’s Meeting today.

 

Special Bible Study: Pastor Aaron Hannemann will be presenting to our Sunday morning Bible Study on January 27th at 8:00 a.m. about the mission efforts of The Gate Lutheran Church in Ankeny.  This will be a great opportunity to learn about Iowa District West's new church that St. John's is supporting this year.  

 

Lutheran Witness Subscriptions Due - Those who are receiving the Lutheran Witness now and wish to continue, you may pay for those in the church office or mark an envelope and place it in the offering plate. The amount for a year subscription is $ 22.68.  If you would like to receive the Lutheran Witness or would like to cancel it you will need to let me know.  Rosann, Sec.

 

Change of Address/Email – Please, submit any of your changes of Address that you have or that of a family member to the church office or to churchoffice@stjohnsburt.org.  Also, we’d like your correct email address and cell phone number. 

 

Lessons on the Liturgy  - Red or White Wine at Communion?

Our Lord didn’t specify that we use a certain type of wine  for the Lord’s Supper, only that we use wine just as He did.  Whether we use red or white wine, merlot or zinfandel, is up to our own discretion.  Lutherans do, however, have an interesting history concerning our choice of wine. During the Reformation other Protestant churches required the use of red wine during the Lord’s Supper.  Since they believed the wine only represented Jesus’ blood as a metaphor then the wine should only be red because it more closely represents blood (they still used wine because unfermented grape juice didn’t exist until the 1900’s).  In reply many Lutherans resolved to use only white wine for the Lord’s Supper to confess that Christ can make His blood present in the wine of His Supper no matter the color of the wine.

Worship By Phone - Did you know that you have the opportunity to listen to our Sunday and Wednesday services by phone?  St. John's has several phone lines available that broadcast when the church sound system is on. So, if you're sick, in the hospital, out of town, or otherwise unable to join us for worship dial 515-924-4444 and you can worship with us via your phone.  You can also listen to Sunday's Scripture readings and sermon at any time at stjohnsburt.org/sermons.

Lessons on the Liturgy  - Lessons on the Liturgy: The Eight-Sided Font

Many baptismal fonts, including ours at St. John’s, are an eight-sided structure.  The number eight represents resurrection and new creation. Ever since God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh, time has passed in seven day increments.  When Jesus came to save the world from sin He was crucified on the sixth day (Friday), rested in the tomb on the seventh day (Saturday), and by raising from the tomb on Sunday introduced a new eighth day into creation - the day of the new creation.  Our eight-sided baptismal font reminds us that all who are baptized into Christ are baptized into His resurrection and are made new creations in Him.

Lessons on the Liturgy  - Epiphany

Epiphany is a Greek word that means “shed light upon” or “manifest” or “make visible.”  Epiphany is celebrated on January 6th (or the nearest Sunday). On this day we celebrate when Jesus manifested Himself to the Gentiles by way of the magi.  During the season of Epiphany we remember various other ways in which Jesus revealed Himself to the world such as: at his Baptism, at the wedding at Cana when He changed water into wine, through His many healings and exorcisms, in His preached Word, and on the Mount of Transfiguration.

Thank You from the Hauan Family:   (Thank you card posted on bulletin board)

*Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, Thank you for the kind Christmas gift, and most especially for our partnership in God’s mission. It is my pleasure to be one of your pastor’s, and enjoy all the time I get to spend with you. God’s blessings this Christmas season.    Pastor Hauan

*Thank You so very much for the generous gift of money you gave us. We really appreciate your generosity and Kindness.

Stewardship Corner - The new year brings a new resolve, but so often that resolve fades before the first week is ended.  The Apostle Paul advised the Corinthians, “A year ago [you] started not only to do this work but also to desire to do it.  So now finish doing it as well, so that your readiness in desiring it may be matched by your completing it out of what you have” (2 Corinthians 8:10,11).  By ourselves, we grow tired or bored or just plain lazy.  Let us ask the Lord to give us the desire to give generously, to serve joyfully, and to expend our time eagerly in response to what God has given to us and done for us.

 

Lessons on the Liturgy  - The Incarnation

The moment of God becoming man begins the climax of salvation history.  While everyone has a favorite Christmas hymn, O Jesus Christ, Thy Manger Is (LSB 372) is among the best at communicating what the birth of Jesus means for us in beautiful poetic style fit for such an occasion.  Here are the first four verses:

  1        O Jesus Christ,/ Thy manger is/ My paradise at which my soul reclineth

For there, O Lord,/ Doth lie the Word/ Made flesh for us; here-in Thy grace forth shineth.

  2        He whom the sea/ And wind obey/ Doth come to serve the sinner in great meekness.

Thou, God’s own Son,/ With us art one,/ Dost join us and our children in our weakness.

  3        Thy light and grace/ Our guilt efface,/ Thy heav’nly riches all our loss retrieving.

Immanuel,/ Thy birth doth quell/ The pow’r of hell and Satan’s bold deceiving.

  4        Thou Christian heart,/ Who-e’er thou art,/ Be of good cheer and let no sorrow move thee!

For God’s own Child,/ In mercy mild,/ Joins thee to Him; how greatly God must love thee!

Lessons on the Liturgy  - Phos Hilaron

The Phos Hilaron, or, Hymn of Light is a hymn composed in the 3rd Century which still sung by Christians today.  We sing this hymn during Evening Prayer (LSB 244). When we sing this hymn as the sun is setting we remember and praise the Joyous Light of Glory, Jesus Christ, who is the Light no darkness can overcome, who led Israel by a pillar of fire by night and who leads us by his Word which is is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.  The words of the hymn are easy to learn by heart and make a great spoken or sung prayer every evening, especially in these darkest days of winter:

            Joyous light of glory: of the immortal Father, heavenly, holy, blessed Jesus Christ.  

We have come to the setting of the sun, and we look to the evening light.  

We sing to God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:

You are worthy of being praised with pure voices forever.  

O Son of God, O Giver of life: the universe proclaims Your glory.

Lessons on the Liturgy  - The Great O Antiphons

The beloved Advent hymn O Come, O Come, Emmanuel finds its origins in a seven-day prayer dating back to at least the 8th century. The prayer begins on Dec. 17th and ends on Dec. 23rd. Each day has a different “O antiphon” which features a particular name of Jesus and a prayer focusing on the salvific attributes of each name.  The antiphons include O Wisdom, Adonai, Root of Jesse, Key of David, Dayspring, King of the Nations, and Emmanuel. The prayer is printed in the hymnal following O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (LSB 357).  Take a picture with your phone or ask Pastor to make a copy for you and pray these prayers with the Church of all ages in the week ahead.
