Celebrating the Church Year: the Presentation of Jesus (February 2)

-something to read: The story of the presentation of  Jesus in the temple, found in Luke 2:22-40.
-something to ponder:
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; they will be always praising thee.
   -Psalm 84:4 
-something to listen to: Simeon's song, the Nunc Dimittis (this one's in English, music by Purcell):

-Something to do: The Presentation is also known as Candlemas, and candles were traditionally blessed on this day. If you're up for something hands-on, this is a great day for making candles!

And, of course, for more great ideas on celebrating the church year, pick up a copy of "Let Us Keep the Feast: Living the Church Year at Home". 

Peace of Christ to you,
