[Episcopal Office of Public Affairs] Epiphany devotions for 2013 developed by the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church of Canada, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada are now available.

“These devotions for Epiphany are a mark of our deepening partnership and the common work of our four churches,” noted Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.  “Our working together is another sign of our full communion relationship.”

The six devotions for the season of Epiphany are based on the shared gospels for the Sundays and are appropriate for groups or individuals.

  • Sunday, January 6: Epiphany 1, Feast of Epiphany

  • Sunday, January 20:  Epiphany 2
  • Sunday, January 27: Epiphany 3
  • Sunday, February 3: Epiphany 4
  • Sunday, February 10: Feast of the Transfiguration

The contributors to the devotions are members of the Lutheran-Episcopal Coordinating Committee (USA), and the Joint Anglican-Lutheran Commission (Canada).

“We commend to your use an inspired collection of devotions for the season of Epiphany, each prepared by a different member of the Lutheran-Episcopal Coordinating Committee (USA) and the Joint Anglican-Lutheran Commission (Canada),” the denominational leaders stated in a joint letter.

    It would be helpful if you included a link to said devotions!

  2. Jeffrey Sharp says:

    From where? Not very good marketing.

  3. John Poynter says:

    I am with Jeffrey Sharp, I would order one if there was any kind of link, assuming that the responsible people for the story in the first place might know where. Church Pension Fund? Moorhouse (sp?) Barlow, Gideon Bible pubs.? where?

    • MJ Fowler says:

      I was equally surprised that there was no link, and went back to re-read; in the third line of the first paragraph is a link to downloadable pdf files. It was easy to miss, but just click where it says “…are available HERE”.

  4. Folks, if you click on the word “here” the links come up . . .

  6. Richard Bidwell says:

  7. Richard Bidwell says:
