For Sunday 24 January 2021


As we gather for worship on the Festival of St. Timothy, the first reading provides a brief introduction to Timothy and how he came to be a colleague of St. Paul. In the Holy Gospel we hear words Jesus addressed to his apostles, urging them to faithfulness and attentiveness in dispensing his gifts. In the epistle reading, a personal admonition from St. Paul to Timothy but certainly applicable to all Christians, Paul characterizes the Christian life as a struggle, a fight against wickedness and evil and a pursuit of righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness. As our Lord Jesus was faithful before Pilate and in his suffering and death, so are we called to make a good confession in our lives until his appearing. The Lord grant us to be faithful in our callings.




We will conclude the celebration on the twelth day of Christmas, 6 January, with a Divine Service on the Feast of the Epihany of our Lord at 7:00 p.m.
