Services on 20-21 January, the Sunday after Theophany and Zaccheus Sunday

On Saturday 20 January and Sunday 21 January we had services for the Sunday after Theophany.  This year, the Sunday after Theophany coincided with Zaccheus Sunday, the final Sunday before the beginning of preparation for Great Lent.  On this day the appointed Gospel reading is Luke 19:1-10, the account of the repentant tax collector Zaccheus of Jericho.  In his sermon the parish rector noted the shift in focus in the life of the Church from the joy of the Great Feasts of the Nativity and the Baptism of Christ to the need for repentance.  This shift is also evident in the Gospel reading appointed for the Sunday after Theophany, Matthew 4:12-17.
