There are usually more Sundays after Epiphany in the Lectionary than are needed between Epiphany and Lent. Please note the dates and begin Lent when it starts for any given year, instead of continuing with all of the Sundays in Epiphany.

When you are one week away from Lent beginning, use the "Last Sunday" of Epiphany week instead of whatever number you are on.

Besides the Message Ideas and commentary for specific weekly passages, here are all the Message Ideas, liturgy, scripts, and Experiential Learning Ideas for Epiphany.
