In the earliest centuries of the Christian church, the first celebrations of Jesus' coming were less focused on the manger scene and more on Christ being revealed to all the world, from the visit of the Magi to all the nations of the world. Maybe our ancestors in the faith were onto something: maybe we need to recover a sense of wonder and appreciation that God not only comes to us in Jesus, but that God also chooses to be revealed in Jesus--to show us something of God's own heart, God's character, and God's "personality" so to speak. That's what the day and season we call "Epiphany" is all about, actually--getting to know who God is, and who Jesus is, in the ways they choose to be revealed. That includes the visiting wise men and the star, but also Jesus' baptism, first public words, and important first actions. They all are ways of showing us something of the character of Jesus--and at the same time, they reveal the heart of God. If that seems like something worth exploring, then join pastors Sarah, Erica, and Steve in this new series for 2022, making the Case for Epiphany!
