The twelve days of Christmas end today, January 5. We now enter a new church season, Epiphany. The term is Greek and means to become, becoming evident or manifest. This season celebrates events in which Jesus’ divinity was made evident or manifest. One is the visit of the Magi who came from the East following astral indications that a new king had been born in Judea. Another event in which Jesus’ divinity was shown was his baptism in the Jordan River, which was accompanied by signs and wonders from heaven. A third is Jesus’ first miracle, where he changed water into wine at a wedding feast. Our Bible readings during this season will give you more details about these events. It is fitting that the season of Christmas, which celebrates Jesus’ birth, should be followed by Epiphany, when we are reminded of his cosmic significance.
Join us in this season of Epiphany! All are welcome, any time from 10:00 a.m. until Noon on Sunday mornings. We share Bible readings for the day (Sunday Lectionary), say the confession, and receive communion. Epiphany Blessings!
