O my Prince
Who canst do all these things,
Bless O God… My kitchen with thy right hand:
My kitchen, the kitchen of God.
A kitchen which my King hath blessed,
A kitchen that hath butter.
Mary’s son, my Friend, cometh
To bless my kitchen.
The Prince of the world to the border,
May we have abundance with him.
I hope you are staying safe and warm. What a week! For some this was a great time to try new baking recipes, watch a few movies, make snowpeople with the kids and get caught up with school work. While others are suffering from the proverbial cabin fever and are ready to interact with other human beings. Yes, there are other people in planet Hoth (that is a reference to a frozen planet in the movie Stars Wars, the original series).
Hoping that things thaw out, Breakfast Liturgy gathers this Sunday January 22nd at 10AM. Please fill out the food form to let us know what you are planning to bring. This help us enjoy a delicious healthy balance. Link to form. Following are some new fun developments in our community.
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea— for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
Breakfast Liturgy is a cross-generational sacramental community that loves food, breakfast food being the best kind.
10:00 AM :: 2nd & 4th Sunday of the Month at Church of the Apostles (COTA)/Fremont Abbey
A beautiful snowy morning in Epiphany. Keep warm.
“All that is eternal in me
welcomes the wonder of this day,
the field of brightness it creates
offering time for each thing
to arise and illuminate’
- John O’Donohue

I believe Breakfast Liturgy has emerged as a community that perhaps in a humble way embrace the Benedictine value of stability. Our community embodies a deep commitment to grounded relationships, in contrast with the transient nature of relationships in the Northwest. One of my images is that Breakfast Liturgy is a community in which the Seattle freeze melts away.
Happy New Year! Happy Epiphany! (Jan. 6)
… we are fed and simultaneously become food for others.
