I've been steeped in Advent and Christmas for over a month now, but it is Epiphany, how do I proceed? Epiphany is about the showing-forth of God in Jesus. In the Episcopal Church, this is first celebrated by the visitation of the three kings. Here, with the wise men we have the recognition of Jesus by Gentiles. It's funny how epiphany has entered our vocabulary as an event that gives great clarity. This is also the theological meaning, and one that I think has brought me to seminary, Jesus, in some way is God in the flesh. I've experienced this and now I'm searching for meaning of that experience. So I guess I strongly identify with those three wise men, the three kings...
