Our Christmas season comes to an end with the day of Epiphany. In our denomination we define epiphany as “a day for commemorating God’s self-manifestation to all people.”

Okay…so…that’s a nice phrase filled with big words and powerful ideas.

But…what does it look like…how does it play out?

How will I know it when I see it?

A couple of years ago when our Squares and Prayers quilters group decided to make and raffle off a quilt to help folks struggling to pay power and rent, nobody thought it would inspire a $250 dollar donation from a state prison inmate.

Neither did anybody imagine that inmate’s generosity in turn would inspire a local person – who does not do church – to stop by this church and drop off another $100 to help.

Odds and ends of cloth combined with creative energy resonating in a state prison inmate and echoed by someone outside the church that points somebody else to God’s love made real in Jesus Christ.

This is how I see epiphany.

How about you?

A brand new year is directly in front of us; I invite you to join us Sundays at 10AM as we look together.

Together We Serve,
Pastor Mike
