“Season” of Epiphany
What is going on between Christmas and Easter? A lot!
This season lasts four to nine weeks, from the Feast of the Epiphany (Jan. 6) through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The length of the season varies according to the date of Easter. The gospel stories of this season describe various events that manifest the divinity of Jesus. The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Epiphany. The Baptism of our Lord is observed on the Sunday after Epiphany. The gospels for the other Sundays of the Epiphany season describe the wedding at Cana, the calling of the disciples, and various miracles and teachings of Jesus. The Last Sunday after the Epiphany is always devoted to the Transfiguration. Jesus’ identity as the Son of God is dramatically revealed in the Transfiguration gospel, as well as the gospel of the baptism of Christ. We are called to respond to Christ in faith through the showings of his divinity recorded in the gospels of the Epiphany season. (From The Episcopal Church Website)
Sundays at St. Luke’s
Each Sunday morning at 9:30, we sing hymns (traditional and modern), pray for each other and the world, read and preach the gospel, and work to appropriate it in our lives. You are welcome wherever you are on your spiritual journey.
