Epiphany season! This is the time in the church year in which we
celebrate the light of the star that led the wise men to Christ, and the
light of the Spirit that guides our way and reveals fresh wisdom. May
your Epiphany be filled with God's epiphanies!
With love in Christ,

Epiphany at Epiphany
give thanks for the wonderful celebration at Epiphany, East Los
Angeles, this past Sunday. Several speakers celebrated the historical
and spiritually significant role that Epiphany has played in areas of
civil rights and social justice. Emmanuel was honored for our 40 year
support of their ministry, and about twenty of us led the community in
singing "We Are Marching in the Light of God" (complete with scarves and
assorted rhythm instruments!) A highlight for me was seeing the
children of the congregation re-enact the journey of the wise men as the
congregation sang "We Three Kings". The Eucharist was followed by a
sumptuous feast and great fun in a packed parish hall.
May the Holy Spirit continue to bless their ministry and our hearts connection with each other.
