Have You Ever Had An Epiphany?

Have you ever had an epiphany – when you suddenly realize the deep meaning of something as if it were a divine revelation? In many Christian traditions, Epiphany is the holiday which commemorates the visit of the Magi to baby Jesus. It’s called the Epiphany because their role in the birth of Jesus “reveals” him as king of the Gentiles as well as Jews. Good news for all of us!

January 6th is Epiphany and at Hope it marks the last day that the collection of nativities will be on display in the Darling Library this season. Come by and take a look at the variety of ways that different cultures represent the birth of Jesus before they are packed away for another year.

Library Intersession Hours are 12:00pm to 6:00pm Monday through Thursday and 12:00pm to 5:00pm on Fridays. Closed on the weekends.

For more information on the church’s celebration of Epiphany go to “The Epiphany Season.” The Voice. CRI/Voice Institute. http://www.crivoice.org/cyepiph.html
