From Our Pastor: Merry Christmas!
Don't forget it is still Christmas! Most of the world, The Feast of the Epiphany, is the big feast of Christmas!
The majority of the world doesn't give gifts until this day. The feast of the Epiphany is the high holy feast of Christmas! The coming of the Magi, wise men, kings, etc. (all those names point to a different reality of who they are) is the revelation to the world.
This revelation is one to the Gentiles and the whole world. These gifts they bring tell us who the Christ is, just read the song "We Three Kings", and that song teaches us clearly what they bring and what they teach us about the Christ.
May we see His revelation and follow the star to Him, but may we too change the direction of our lives after we have encounter this tiny child.
