Today is the day to proclaim Epiphany! (Even though it was commemorated in church last Sunday, today, January 6th, is the officially marked day.) You may finally move your magi nativity pieces into their final resting spot — assuming that they’ve been traveling over your tablelands until now.
Epiphany serves as a reminder that God has come among us as a human being – God with us as Jesus. Celebrations of Epiphany traditionally are tied to the arrival of the wise men to worship Jesus.
These magi have always fascinated me. Their courage! Their fortitude! They likely traveled a thousand miles from their home in Persia or Arabia, all the way to Bethlehem — guided by an unusual star in the sky.
They followed this star, not knowing where they would end up.
Can we do that?
Start off on a journey not knowing where we are headed?
How about your family’s faith journey?
Or even your own personal walk with God?
Do you know where your journey will take you?
Do you know what you will find along the way?
Will you step out in faith… to grow your faith?
Your family is depending on you to take the lead.
