Pastor Parker’s TowerLight Message - Fruit of the Spirit - Peace
At the Nightwatch Service here at Epiphany on New Years’ Eve, each person received a “fruit of the spirit” to work on: Faithfulness, Generosity, Goodness/Kindness, Self-Control, Gentleness, Joy, Love, Peace, or Patience.
So, how’s it going? You who received “peace,” have you achieved peace? Have you even tried? How does one even begin to look for peace when the world is constantly at war and seemingly always on a brink of a big one? How do you find peace when your family is torn apart or complicated or in mourning?
“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. With every breath I take, let this be my solemn now - to take each moment and live each moment in peace and purity. Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.”
Back in the day, I took to reading “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and I came across in there a Chinese Proverb that began, “if there is peace in the heart, there will be peace...” and ended, “if there is peace in..., there will be peace in the world.”
I certainly wish I could bring an end to the over half a century old conflict between Israel and Palestine, or the terror caused by drug cartels in Mexico and Latin America and by those same drugs on the streets of Baltimore. I really do. And, who knows, maybe I can make a difference, if even just for one person. But, our quest for peace must begin closer to home. How do you find peace in your own life? Is it quitting the job that’s killing you and finding one that gives you meaning? Is it making the time in your busy schedule for yoga? Is it making time each morning for quiet prayer and contemplation? Is it re-kindling a friendship that has been sorely lacking in your life?
Start small, and let the peace of God dwell in you richly, name you beloved, and shine brightly on your path!

An Invitation - Bring Candles to be Blessed
On Saturday (Feb 1) & Sunday (Feb 2), bring your candles to be blessed in worship. It is Candlemas, the day we remember the presentation of Jesus in the temple, how he is a light to Simeon and Anna, and a light for the world, and that even through the bitter cold of winter, the light of Christ shines bright. We will bless the candles in the church and any candles you care to bring. May the candles that you bring carry the light of Christ into your home.
Meet Pat McGowan.
Last month we introduced you to Amanda McGowan. This month meet her grandmother, Pat McGowan! Pat is a long-time member of Epiphany. Her family have been members of Epiphany since 1956, when her mother, Blanche Frankhouser, joined Epiphany with all her children.
Frequently, Pat can be found around the church working very, very hard on many activities. She organizes and sets up the Savers Fundraisers and Silent Auctions. As a member of the Community Life Committee, she helps set-up, organize, publicize, serve and clean-up for the annual Christmas bazaar, Bag Bingo, Movie Nights and much more. Pat orders the food and assists with set-up, serving, and clean-up of funeral luncheons. During VBS, Pat makes sure the children get dinner each night. Generally, if there is a Fundraiser or Community Life event at Epiphany, you will probably find Pat there.
If hearing all this makes you exhausted, be thankful for Pat’s service. And maybe you’d like to volunteer to help her out on the next big event. Thanks Pat, for all you do!
This is the fifth article in a series entitled “Meet Our Volunteers.” Learn a little bit about each volunteer and understand what they do here at Epiphany. Without their help, many things around the Church would not get done. And if you are feeling inspired, call the office to let us know you would like to volunteer in some way.

Our Winter Warm Tree is Weighed Down!
You have been so generous!
Thank you to the many people who brought in a hat or a pair of gloves and to the few people who went on shopping sprees for the sake of our neighbors, that they might be safe and more comfortable this winter. We have been able to send gobs of gloves and hats over to St. Matthias, as well as giving them out through the Food Pantry. Gifts for parlor windows and security system.
We are so grateful of the tremendous generosity of so many people here at Epiphany, who give not to win favor from God or mortal, but simply from the joy of caring for the church they love so much - the God-is-Love Church. We have had the parlor windows replaced and roof work there will be done on scaffolding once we have passed Easter. We have had the Hightman Hall windows painted. We have had a security system installed. All of these are part of creating a safe and welcoming place for our community, to worship, to grow in faith, to gather in community, and to learn. We have received gifts towards the Hightman Hall windows to pay that in full. We have just begun fundraising for the security system and are hoping to receive some substantial gifts towards the nearly $530 left to be raised for that system of cameras. And finally, we have over $6333 left to be raised for the parlor windows and roof work.

Stewardship Rodger Thomas & Lois Errickson
Your Offering Matters!
Each of us here at Epiphany have an opportunity every week to give not only towards our current expenses, but also towards benevolence and long-term maintenance. Offering made towards current supports our mission to tell the Good News that God is Love in Word and Deed! Offering designated towards what is called “benevolence” supports Coalition of Lutherans Advancing In Mission, the needs of our community members, and most significantly the work of our synod and the whole ELCA. Our Synod supports campus ministry, support for rostered ministers and lay leadership, and of course, ministries in transition. Offering designated for “long-term maintenance” builds up the account that allows our property committee to care for this church building.
We are not asking you to fork up more money. We appreciate your generosity. Rather, we’d like to invite you to specify in your pledge how much of your weekly or monthly offering you’d like to go to current, to benevolence, and to long-term maintenance. You might consider specifying 10% of your regular offering go to benevolence, 10% to long-term maintenance, and the rest to current. There are modified pledge cards in the commons. Though, if you’ve already completed yours, thank you, and you can give this breakdown directly to Curt Ketter (email@example.com).
If you have any questions, you can ask any member of council or the stewardship committee.

The Epiphany Crew will be serving again at Loaves & Fishes on March 21st, so look for an update then about how you can be a part of the effort! But, they welcome volunteers every week. Just contact Pris Sicard.
Food Pantry Our food pantry serves people every Thursday 9am-11am. We are currently in need of peanut butter, jelly, and canned soup. If you would like to make a monetary donation to the Food Pantry, please donate online or place it into the offering plate labeled “Food Pantry.”
Are you interested in mentoring local young adults as they play basketball and form community?
The idea is to start each weekly gathering with just a brief check-in between mentors and mentees, an hour to an hour and a half of basketball, and then a regroup before sending everyone home. This may, over time, expand to include life-skills like budgeting, making a resume, and others that you all might suggest. We want your input, and the input of the young adults who we hope will want to be a part of this. Contact any member of the LEAD Team if you're interested. The LEAD facilitator is Gil Shelsby.

The Facilities Crew Meets every Wednesday morning at 9am. You're always welcoe to join them!
Evangelism & Outreach Claudia Morrell
Hello and happy New Year! I am the new chairperson of the Evangelism Committee for Epiphany Lutheran Church, the God-Is-Love church. I am also new to Epiphany, so I know very little about the area, but I want to help share the Good News! With higher suicides rates, increasing drug overdoses, declining life expectancy in the U.S. for the third year in a row, I know there is a lot going in the wrong direction. I work in education, so I know there are a lot if ideas about what we need to do to solve these problems in our communities and even our own homes. Fear, anger, loneliness, and depression are overwhelming our experiences of joy and hopefulness. As the least qualified person at Epiphany (but perhaps the most audacious), I think I have the answer! Let us show and tell everyone about the Good News of Jesus Christ!
How do we do that? I have some ideas, and I bet you do too. I want to find ways to better “give faith a fighting chance” in our communities and homes. Love has an amazing way of overcoming all things. As I think about evangelism, I ask the question, how can we give hope and help to those in need of spiritual connection? As we think about all Epiphany does to serve, how can we help others find their faith through service?
Now to my request. I am seeking a few faith-filled people to join me in developing a plan to better connect to our community, both inside and outside our doors. I am very experienced in program management and implementation of projects, but I am new to the area and to implementing a faith-focused project. I promise meetings only once per month filled with laughter and love and a belief in the value of all voices. I pray you will hear not my voice, but God’s, calling you to his service. My hope is for new friendships and fellowship that fills a place in our shared hearts. Won’t you help me?
Please call me, stop me in church, (I usually attend the Sunday service at 9:00) leave a note in my Epiphany mailbox, or e-mail or text me…. I look forward to this journey with you!
