The Feast of Epiphany marks the end of the Christmas season and the beginning of the time before Lent. Moving beyond the miracle of the Incarnation, Epiphany pays special attention to the fact that God not only comes to be with those who are waiting for him, but to pursue and seek after those who would otherwise remain far from him.
If the prayer of Advent is that God would come to us, the hope and prayer of Epiphany is that he would continue to make himself known to us and to work through us for the sake of others. In the story of the Magi we see that God’s manifestation through Jesus was shared with the world right from the start.
In this podcast, Worship Pastor Marty Reardon and Education Pastor Ashley Mathews discuss what “epiphany” truly means and what God’s manifestation to the world shows us about how we are to live and to relate to one another.
