Epiphany

In the church calendar Epiphany begins on 6 January, the Feast of the Epiphany and continues through the 3 or 4 Sundays of Epiphany until  2nd February, the Presentation of Christ in the Temple ('Candlemas').

Epiphany means 'revelation' or 'showing forth'. It is about how God is revealed in Jesus, through signs, miracles and preaching. In a personal sense an epiphany is a 'light bulb' or 'eureka' moment, that sudden realization of a truth previously hidden from understanding - that moment of exclaiming, "now, I see."


Here are some Epiphany posts:
