The Story at Home: Preparing for Sundays

About the Story at Home

With Bishop John’s blessing, the parishes of Ascension and Epiphany use a narrative lectionary. As the year unfolds, our weekly readings trace the arc of salvation history, one story at a time. And each week, resources for home support reading, reflecting, and praying with the Bible.

Our worship is participatory: In addition to a sermon, we take a few minutes to work through our response to the word of God, communally and in our own hearts in other ways.

No matter what is happening, sitting quietly in prayer, private journaling, or colouring will always be an option!
