Epiphany

Christ revealed
January 6 – March 3, 2019

During the season of Epiphany, we ponder the revelations of Christ in the world: first to the Gentiles (represented by the “wise men from the east” in the nativity), and then beyond. Most importantly, we look for Christ to be revealed in our midst.
