Chalking the door is a way to celebrate and literally mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God’s blessing of our lives and home. With time the chalk will fade. As it does, we let the meaning of the symbols written sink into the depths of our heart and be manifest in our words and actions – the Latin words, Christus mansionem benedictat, “May Christ bless the house.” Download the PDF below to chalk your own door and welcome Christ into your home.
The Staff chalked the entrances to church this morning as our devotion before Staff meeting. See if you can find the chalk the next time you're here!
