Epiphany Sunday

Brian Partridge’s sermon this past Sunday was a perfect antidote to our annual festival of accumulation thinly disguised as a celebration of the birth of Christ. So, I guess I should stop browsing ebay. Here is the prayer for the week:

Holy God,

Let me not be deceived;
these things that I possess,
do I use them,
or do they use me?

Help me to loosen my grip
on that which I so tightly grasp,
so that I can open my hands to you.

Amen
