It’s a New Year!

2020 is here and the Urban Mission is eager to serve our community in new and exciting ways!

We are also in the season of Epiphany which means the Christmas season is over and we are now called to do the “work of Christmas.”

We invite you to reflect on this short litany called “The Work of Christmas” composed by Howard Thurman, an African-American theologian, educator, and civil rights leader. 

As you prepare your hearts and mind for the new year, may you remember these words – 

“When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flocks, the work of Christmas begins: to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among the people, to make music in the heart.”
