Notices: 17 January 2021, Proper 2

Dear friends,This Sunday we will hear the Gospel story where John the Baptist witnesses to “the Lamb of God,” and disciples are invited to follow Jesus. “Come and see” is what Jesus says to each and every one of us. Together let us follow Jesus in the ways of Love that lead to the fullness of life.
