On the Feast of the Epiphany the Grace Church celebrates the pilgrimage of the Wisemen from the East made to Bethlehem to honor the infant Jesus. Neither Jewish or Christian, these men were the first to be overwhelmed with joy at his birth and pay Jesus homage. Then they returned to their own country. Mindful of the Wisemen, Grace has used the celebration of the Epiphany as an opportunity to welcome people of other faiths into our community, admire what is beautiful about them, share our similarities, respect our differences and broaden our understanding of how God is at work in the world.
During January, Grace will welcome Imam Saffet Catovic to lead three discussions about Islam. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the faith of many of your neighbors and ask Imam Catovic about his own life with God. He’s looking forward to meeting you!
- Dates – Thursdays January 16th, 23rd & 30th
- Time – @ 7pm
- Location – In the Rectory, Grace Church
