6 Jan 2019 - On Epiphany Sunday, Rev. David Pileggi looks at Ephesians 3 and the mystery of reconciliation and inclusion within the Gospel. God's plan of salvation is to make a new humanity, not just save individual souls. The good news is about making a community within which God can dwell. God intends to fulfill his vision in Genesis 12, where Jews and Gentiles were to live together in harmony, interdependence and mutual blessing. God makes the community possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. God wants to heal not just the division between Jews and Gentiles but between broken families, men and women, the races and more. The peace, unity and reconciliation that should define the community of God requires unity through love and holy living. Then the church will fulfill its mission, to reflect God's character. Readings: Isaiah 60:1-6, Ephesians 3:1-12, Matthew 2:1-12
