Today was Epiphany Sunday (Epiphany was on Friday but recognized today in many Christian traditions, including Anglican/Episcopal) which also Theophany or Three Kings’ Day, is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God in his Son as the incarnation of Jesus Christ.
I appreciate being in a faith community that honors ancient traditions (such as Epiphany, Advent, Lent, Pentecost and the like) and teachings that predate Biblical texts. The story of Christianity is more than what you read from Genesis to Revelation (from a follower of Jesus’ perspective). Ones faith is told not only from a Book but from oral traditions and customs that have been passed down for generations and through time and space. It is those things that brings ancient believers to the believers of the present. Through all of it God is there and there is great comfort in that.
