St. Paul Lutheran Church, Karnes City: Walking in the light of God
During the season of Epiphany, the church celebrates walking in the light of God revealed in Christ. The first Sunday after Epiphany, one remembers Christ’s baptism by John in the Jordan River. Christ’s baptism is the root of all Christian baptism. In baptism, one receives the promise of a new identity, child of God, marked indelibly upon their brow and are given the gift of a mission of healing, peace, and justice. One walks in the light of Christ; one walks through life with soggy shoes.
St. Paul’s News and Notes: St. Paul’s accepted the Synod’s invitation to be a part of pilot program run in partnership with The Missional Network. A Guiding Team is being put together to lead St. Paul’s in this endeavor. The people of St. Paul’s are partners with the Karnes City Schools to provide school supplies and backpacks of food to provide meals on the weekends for needy students.
