Dear friends,

Our apologies - the date for this devotional is today, January 7, 20201.

Ms. Margaret Howe, NYAC Conference Secretary and one of the Catskill Hudson District Lay Leaders, has provided us with this week's devotional, about Epiphany and the Chalking of Doors.  We hope that you will take time, at your convenience, to pause and reflect on Margaret's message about inviting Christ's blessing upon our homes, work spaces, and lives. Please share this and any of our pre-recorded devotionals with your congregation, or with others who may need to hear a hope-filled message at this time.

We would like to invite the clergy and laity of the New York Conference to participate with us in these weekly reflection times.  If you are interested in providing a devotional for us, or if you know someone who might be (clergy or laity), please contact Carol Merante ( in the Connectional Ministries office.

Reminder: there will no longer be live reflection times at 12:30 on Thursdays.

Happy New Year!
