Starting on Epiphany 3 (January 27), you will be given something rather fun along with your Sunday bulletin - a copy of the Sunday Paper. No, it's not the New York Times, complete with crossword and Book section (sorry!), but a comic-book style reference to the morning's lectionary readings with some thoughts to reflect upon. There are two editions; one is for older youth and one for younger, though frankly we think both are good for all ages!
We encourage you to take them and make them your own... feel free to jot notes during the readings, colour in the pictures while you're listening to the sermon, write down questions you'd like to ask later, use them at home to help you think back on the lessons, or pass them along to a friend or family member. We have ordered sets for Epiphany and Lent, and look forward to hearing from you how they have been received.
The Sunday Paper is created by Gretchen Wolff Pritchard in her home in Connecticut. You can learn more about the resource, which is used in many Episcopal churches in the States, by clicking here.
