what we see and search for

January 19, 2020

Pastor Joanne Engquist gives our message on this 2nd Sunday after Epiphany. Readings for today are from Isaiah 49: 1-7 and John 1: 35-42. 

"The question of what we are looking for maybe is not so much a wondering about our hopes and our intentions; perhaps when Jesus asks, 'What are you looking for,' it's to invite us more deeply into the story itself. To help us behold what is before us. To invite us to think not just what it is that interests us, but to consider where God is made known. The call to have a look is more than idle chatter. The call is to see - to really open up to what is before us."
