FEBRUARY | Rainbow
The beautiful full rainbow brightening up the stormy sky over the Chapel is a symbol of hope...
“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, Hope unswervingly, Love extravagantly. And the best of the three is Love." 1Cor13:12-13

FOLLOW THE STAR | Jospeh

FOLLOW THE STAR | Three Gifts
The Wise Men followed the star to Bethlehem, where it stopped over the place where Mary, Joseph and Jesus were staying. The Wise Men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and worshipped Jesus. God warned them in a dream not to tell King Herod where the new King was, so they went home a different way.
FOLLOW THE STAR | Angels
Suddenly there was a bright light in the sky and an angel appeared. The shepherds were very frightened but the angel said: “Do not be afraid, Jesus has been born and you will find him in a stable in Bethlehem.” All the angels sang, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace to everyone on earth.”
