One of the least understood Christian days of the year. Chuck provides some insight while having an epiphany of his own.
Christmas is not just one day, but a season of twelve days from sunset Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) through Epiphany.
The twelfth day of Christmas, Epiphany, an even more ancient Christian celebration than Christmas, originally focused on the nativity, God’s incarnation (God made flesh) in the birth of Jesus Christ and Christ’s baptism. Today, it commemorates the visiting of the Christ Child by the Magi (Wise Men) with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
What does Melchior know about the Savior’s birth? Worship with us on Sunday, January 3, at 11:15 am or 9am to find out!
Epiphany – the day we celebrate the divine revelation of Christ to those beyond the Jewish nation. We think of Epiphany as the day we remember the coming of the wise men to worship the Christ child and we think immediately of camels, the star, and strange gifts – but is that all there is to the account? Of course not! There is so much more – join us Sunday as we consider how the movers and shakers in the 1st century CE responded to the heavenly sign of the presence of the Son of God among us. How would we respond? How DO we respond?
