Preparing for Sunday: Heading to Egypt

This Sunday's gospel lesson is the story of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus escaping to Egypt. The magi/wise men just left. Then Joseph has a dream warning the holy family to leave Bethlehem (before Herod, on a paranoid rampage, has all the infant boys killed).

Here's a link to the Gospel text, Matthew 2:13-23. And below are some pieces of art - meant to help prepare your hearts and minds.

If you're in the Stewartville/Rochester area, please join us at Zion for worship this Sunday. For this week only, we will have one service at 9am. See you then!
