Some words from Bishop Libby Lane on ‘A Good Epiphany (from the Book, A Good Year’ edited by Mark Oakley

In this book different writers reflect on the different seasons of the church year and what makes them good.  Bishop Libby writes: A good Epiphany I think, is one which is first of all a journey to the foot of the cross, connecting the Christmas story with the Passion of Jesus. Our spiritual growth, with all the pains and trials attendant upon transformation, is planted in the soil of Golgotha.  Of course, the Easter light of resurrection that nurtures our growth is part of Epiphany too, as we are led by the light of the star to discover the life of God made manifest in us. The is he light that makes the journey possible. God is the beginning and the end of our homecoming. Without the light of Christ we remain in darkness.
