Happy Epiphany!

Today is Epiphany, the celebration of Christ’s manifestation to the Nations, often represented by the three mages (“kings”). Since Universalist Christianity — it seems to me — is marked by recognizing the ever-widening bands of God’s grace, concern and love, the thrust of Epiphany and the weeks that follow are vitally important.

The light of this understanding — the star — is dim, but grows until typified by the Feast of the Transfiguration, where Christ’s purpose is typified by blinding light and his disciples trembling but resolute knowledge.
