We join in worship Sunday, January 3rd to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany and begin the Epiphany Season.
Epiphany is a season when we reflect on God’s incarnation and revelation in the world; a day when we think about the guiding star revealed to the magi (and others) that began to spread that news about Gods incarnation in the infant Jesus. The star revealed that something new was beginning to take place. The journey would be different. Jesus’ journey had begun.
The story of the Magi is found in Matthew 2:1-12
Again this year the sanctuary will be filled with 300 stars, each with a word on it. Each person was asked to randomly choose a star and consider their it as a guiding word for reflection throughout 2016.
People continue to enjoy the guiding starWord and share their stories with me. It is awesome to hear how these words impact people and often ask them to be stretched in new ways.
The stars will continue to be in the sanctuary over the next couple of weeks. If you do not often come to church or you are one of our E-News readers that lives outside of our community please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happily pull out a star for you and send it to you via email.
For those that have stars please consider sharing your word and/or your thoughts on it in the comments below.
May the star that guided the magi continue to guide our lives.
