Google search: Epiphany is a Christian holiday primarily commemorating the Magi's visit to the baby Jesus and the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist. Eastern traditions, which usually call the holiday Theophany, focus on Jesus' baptism, seen as the manifestation of Christ as both fully human and fully divine.
Cambridge Dictionary: a moment when you suddenly feel that you understand, or suddenly become conscious of, something that is very important to you.
Yesterday, January 6, Christians celebrated Epiphany. I was reminded of the many epiphanies that have come along on my faith journey—those times when I suddenly become conscious of something that is very important to my faith. Some of these epiphanies faded away soon after they appeared. Others kept returning, indicating that they were not personal whims or wishes, but messages from God. One continues to be persistent calls from God. God’s call for me to pray for people has been a longstanding one.
Now another keeps coming. “Live your life for Jesus.” I’m not sure I have the wording quite right, but I’m working on it. Or, shall I say that God is working on it. Let me say that the idea keeps me hopeful and purposeful. A more encompassing reason for helping out, for being of service.
