This is the season of the Epiphany.

From the Pastor

“Today, I had an epiphany!”

Was that with cheese and waffle fries? It’s not a food choice but a life-changing breakthrough. It is an “aha” moment when things come to light. But what about the Day of Epiphany or the season of Epiphany?

Let’s see winter, spring, summer, fall and epiphany. Okay, it’s a season of the church year between Christmas and Lent during “Cabin Fever” days. The day of Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and the larger season underscores God becoming visible to humanity from the celebration of Jesus’ baptism to the transfiguration of Jesus, tied together by the heavenly acclamation, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased!”


By now we’ve packed away our Christmas tinsel for another year and have entered the time where the snow is no longer white but has been smudged with salt, sand, and the grit of winter. Christmas carols have turned to laments of “how long” as we bide our time and wait for winter to pass. However, living life does not stop.


That’s epiphany. God makes a visit or becomes manifest during these cold and uneventful days. It more than a one-day celebration of God’s “aha” moment. It is one that carries us through an often lonely and depressing time. I probably don’t have to tell you how cold it gets during this season, and I’m not talking about the weather. The loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, family issues and concerns are all events that take on a “coldness” that befits the season. Faith answers this chill over a series of days and weeks. God makes that promise manifest over the time it takes for us to be rescued. The “bah-ha” moments of a cold, winter season give way to God’s “aha” moment for us. Son of a gun—no, Son of God!!

Is There Room?

Prepare the way, for he will come!

Be ready for that day!

The voice of God was speaking out,

A promise on display!


Foretold and still the world would be,

Astounded and in awe...

Prepare the way, yet when he came,

His bed was made of straw!


Is there room in your heart for Jesus?

Is there room in your heart this day?

When the Christ Child arrives at your door,

Would you find him a place to stay?


Prepare the way, for he is here;

A star to guide your way!

The Father said, "This is my Son!

Come see him where he lay!"


Foretold by prophets long ago,

Our God came down to earth!

This world would be forever changed,

By this humble baby's birth!


Is there room in your heart for Jesus?

Is there room in your heart this day?

Our Father came down from heaven,

Seeking room in your heart to stay!


Prepare the way, for he has come!

Receive him as you pray!

The voice of God was heard through him;

His love was on display!


Foretold and written by God's hands,

This child would show the way!

He'll lead us to the Father's arms,

And guide us when we stray...


Is there room in your heart for Jesus?

Is there room in your heart this day?

In a manger dark, he will bring new light!

Give him room in your heart to stay!
