Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Nathanael replied, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
Join Miss Abby as we hear the story about how God called Samuel, who is still a child. Did you know that God can still speak to us – no matter who we are? All we need are open ears and open hearts. Today we also remember the season of light and look forward to bringing light into our world together.
Can you imagine spending your entire childhood helping a blind priest in a temple? That’s what happened to Samuel. One night Samuel hears someone calling to him, who could it be? What will Samuel say in response? We’ll also talk about all the ways we are seeing and being light in the season of Epiphany. Grab your Prayer Book, your Bible, and your Gratitude Journal and join Miss Abby in your special holy space.
