Epiphany 1The Epiphany, is celebrated on the Sunday after Jan 6th, the Twelfth day after Christmas. However, it is actually a season that extends from that date, to ash Wednesday (the beginning of lent). The Epiphany season is a celebration of the discovery of something profound, in the observation of something ordinary.

The word epiphany means appearance or manifestation. Popular usage likens epiphany to words such as eureka or aha! Use of this word by some English speakers conjures images of having a light bulb turned on, or of being able to see something that was once hidden from view. Many of us were introduced to Epiphany through the familiar silhouetted-image of Three Wise Men bearing gifts as they followed the Great Star by night. In some cultures, Epiphany is known as the Day of the Kings.

Epiphany should also be the recognition that the sharing of the Good News and tending of the flock requires:Epiphany 2

  • • Faith;
  • • a willingness to be open to the truth;
  • • may require a long Journey;
  • • requires resources and provisions,

This is as true today as it was over 2000 years ago as the Maji came to witness, and give what that had to support a New Kingdom on Earth.

The actual discovery of who Jesus was and what he means to the world began that day, and continues to this day. Just as the discovery of who Jesus was did not end with the Wisemen, and the shepards, it should not end with us. This is a season of growth of understanding, there are several special classes in addition to our regular Sunday School classes. Contact Pastor Natalie for times and location of these special classes.
