This week, we will be celebrating Epiphany of Our Lord in the parish I serve. This is a story from Matthew 2 where we learn about the wise men coming to meet Jesus and bringing the good news of his arrival to the nations. Why not take this opportunity to encourage young adults in our church who have committed a year to bring the Word to the nations in a real way? In the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), these young people are called Young Adults in Global Mission, or YAGMs. You can connect with a YAGM through their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ELCAYAGM. Write an encouraging note, read their stories, and pray for them, their experience, and the lives they will touch.
