AN Sunday Study – Epiphany

January 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Epiphany:  an intuitive grasp of reality through something (such as as event) usually simple and striking

A revealing scene or moment, a moment when you suddenly see something in a new or clear way, aha!

Throughout Advent we have set a generous table and claim all families, all creation, to be holy.  

What now?

…And we will open our hands to the feast without shame.

And we will turn toward each other without fear.

And we will give up our appetite for despair.

And we will taste and know of delight.

And we will become bread for a hungering world.

And we will become drink for those who thirst.

And the blessed will become the blessing.

And everywhere will be the feast.

From And the Table Will be Wide by Jan Richardson

There are as many ways to follow the star as there are beloved followers…The Magi (wise ones) chose to follow a light in the night sky, then reorient themselves to a new way home.   

Nora Gallagher says Epiphany is a weird season.  What do you think?   

These were my Epiphanies:  no thunderclaps, no voices from heaven.  A brief glimpse, a sense of release, and the world was righted, re-made in a way that was upside down from what I had imagined.  Though I still didn’t count on these moments, I came to the point where I noticed them.

Epiphany is a season of peripheral vision, peripheral hearing – experiences and events bringing into focus  a dawning sense of what God has in store for us. Pay attention.  Look to the ordinary all around us.  Then, how do we fold our embodied experiences into flesh/incarnation? We long to find our (soul’s) shape in the world by starting out…weathering our souls into identity through acts and deeds. Choosing incarnation.   God is the ‘Really Real’, revealed in the marginal.
