Unlikely, unimaginable, unexpected

Today is Epiphany. Yes, this feast of the church was celebrated on Sunday, but today is the traditional date, 12 days after Christmas. The name of this feast comes from the Greek, Ἐπιφάνεια – Epiphania, also also referred to by some as theophany. Ultimately all these words mean revelation, vision, manifestaion or vision of God.

God is everywhere of course, waiting to be discovered, seen, noticed, and embraced. We tend to avoid eye contact, averting our glance as we cloak our hearts, as if to put a medical mask upon them. After all, we might “catch” something. *sigh*

Today, may we all pay attention and look around. May God be made manifest in all of the most unlikely places,  unimaginable forms, and unexpected people today and always. Consider where will you discover Christ this day.

Blessings of the Feast of the Epiphany! Here is a short (5ish minutes) video clip from the 2006 movie The Nativity Story. I really loved the representation of the Magi in this film.
