Epiphany – January 6th – marks the end of the Christmas season. It is the ‘’Twelfth” day of Christmas and has sometimes been referred to as “Little Christmas.” The word “epiphany” means to make manifest and, in the Christian tradition, refers to the visit of the Magi to Jesus. This visit is taken to signify the making manifest of Jesus as the Savior of the whole world. The Christian church has observed Epiphany since the third century. We will observe Epiphany in church on Sunday. Surely our multi-national church community itself bears witness to Jesus as savior of the whole world.
Following the worship service we will have opportunity to mingle during our fellowship time. How about taking the opportunity to chat with one of our number, whom you may not know well and learn of the pilgrimage of that person?
Russ MacLeod will lead the adult Christian Education class. This, also, is an opportunity to get to know better members of our church family.
