Tapestry by John Nava
Believe it or not, the Christmas season is still alive and well on the Church calendar. Christmastide ends not with Epiphany but with this coming Sunday's feast of the Baptism of the Lord. (Then we go back to Ordinary Time until Ash Wednesday.)
Take some time this week to read and pray over Sunday's scriptures and background on them. And if you're going to church with children, help them take a look at the scriptures from their point of view.
There are options for both the first and second lessons for this feast - it will be up to the preacher in your parish to make the choice. The link above offers you all the choices.
