Epiphany can easily slip away unnoticed
In the midst of weekday routine.
The traditions are simple:
a bit of cake, a bit of chalk, perhaps candles,
or removing the tree.
The star-led journey
Is not marred by commercialism or obligation.
Epiphany is the luminous knowing
of Christ with us, Savior as star-dust-flesh;
That we may encounter our Creator,
In water, in bread and wine;
That we may shine brilliantly with love,
and be saved from all that binds us.
Today, we are reminded
that each day is a day for knowing.
We’ll be chalking the door at our home this year for Epiphany this year, our first time experiencing this tradition. A set of instructions and brief liturgy can be found at Building Faith.
