On Epiphany (or New Year, or the first convenient opportunity) you can bless your house.
Just when most people in our context are busy with the liturgies of the beach, of camping, and of barbecues, the Anglican Church of Or outdoes itself by providing four pages of options in our Lectionary booklet.
in the stillness of this night
you sent your almighty Word to pierce the world’s darkness
with the light of salvation:
give to the earth the peace that we long for
and fill our hearts with the joy of heaven
through our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word:
Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
