Out of the Darkness

Epiphany on January 6 is a time when the Church celebrates the arrival of the Magi (Wisemen) in Jerusalem seeking the one born “King of the Jews.”  It comes at a time long after the rest of our culture has put away the Christmas Season.  But we are told that these pagan astrologers came seeking light amidst a time of great darkness. 

 

People are still seeking that light today during a time of darkness in our culture.  This reminds me that Jesus' coming sheds light in three crucial areas:  our government, our Church, and our families.  My hope is that as we seek the savior ourselves, that his light will shine to remind us that God is with us!
