The light of Epiphany

The Magi are on their way, set to arrive in Bethlehem - as they do every year! - on Saturday, January 6: Epiphany, or El Dia de Los Tres Reyes. You might want to leave out some hay and water for the camels on Friday night.  Kids might want to leave out their shoes, as perhaps they'll get filled with candy.  And if your nativity scene is still arranged on your mantel, you can move the "Three Kings" next to the manger on Saturday morning!

 

Epiphany offers us epic themes: signs that beckon us to leave home, an uncertain journey, ending up in the wrong place, finding the sacred in the unexpected, guidance in dreams, and choosing another way. This story offers us symbolic truths that can speak to all of us, no matter our circumstances.  I hope to see many of you this Sunday (barring a snowstorm in which case we'll be on zoom!) as we celebrate the journey of the Magi.  May the light of Epiphany bless your days!
