This Time of Year:

Just like the slogan about pets .. “CHRISTMAS ISN’T JUST ABOUT                DECEMBER THE 25TH !” Christmas,    in    the    church,    is    also    a Season, albeit a short one. It   is   the   period   between   Dec.   25th   -   the Birth    of    Christ    -    and    Epiphany    -    the coming of the Magi (three wise men). The    Epiphany    is    an    ancient    Christian feast    day,    significant    in    a    number    of ways.   In   the   East,   where   it   originated, the   Epiphany   celebrates   the   baptism   of Jesus   by   John   the   Baptist   in   the   River Jordan. It also celebrates Jesus' birth. The   Western   Church   began   celebrating the   Epiphany   in   the   4th   century   where it   was,   and   still   is,   associated   with   the visit    of    the    magi    (wise    men)    to    the infant      Jesus      when      God      revealed himself     to     the     world     through     the incarnation     of     Jesus.     According     to Matthew   2:11   they   offered   him   gifts   of gold, frankincense and myrrh. In       the       Spanish       speaking       world Epiphany   is   also   known   as   Dia   de   los Reyes (Three Kings Day). For   many   Protestant   church   traditions, the   season   of   Epiphany   extends   from   6 January    until    Ash    Wednesday,    which begins   the   season   of   Lent   leading   to Easter. Other   traditions,   including   the   Roman Catholic   tradition,   observe   Epiphany   as a single day.
