A certain couple, wishing to keep a record of family events, spent more than a thousand dollars on a video camera and accessories. As soon as the teenage grandchildren and their friends saw the equipment, they wanted to use it. Because the camera represented a sacrifice and was precious to the grandparents, they laid down certain rules.
The Festival of Epiphany is the second-oldest festival of the Christian church. It is always January 6th and marks the start of the next season of the church year.
During Jesus’ earthly life, he gave us an epiphany of God’s true identity—his nature, character, and love. If Christmas celebrates the fact that the Father gave his only-begotten Son to the world, then Epiphany is the unwrapping of this gift.
