Welcome in the Name of Jesus!!


Epiphany
 
      As people of faith we don‘t minimize the very real problems in the world; but we of all people should also keep a sharp eye on the horizon, looking for those signs of God and God‘s continued good work on our behalf. That is what the season of Epiphany is all about; basically that God does show up! Jesus makes himself known in the Gospels at his baptism, the wedding at Cana and on the mountain of Transfiguration where he stands between Moses and Elijah; but Jesus also makes himself known in our world, in our lives, in worship and in our care and concern for the neighbor. Epiphany is basically one big celebration that Jesus is here—right here in our midst.
      That is also what we celebrate in Holy Communion and Baptism. That Jesus is here. We celebrate that God shows up over and over again to remind us that while we are not free from the many hardships that befall us; God has promised to walk with, through and under all that comes our way. During this new year of 2020, it is certain that we‘ll be bombarded with bad news. Some will be the usual catastrophes that befall the world and some will be the made up and exaggerated fear claims that politicians will try to use in order to garner votes and motivate the securing of their war chests. It will be all too easy to be on the side of doom and gloom. That is why we should all keep an eye out for the good news of God in Jesus Christ— and live in it! And we might even be surprised, that we often see what we are looking for—and that might just make 2020 a very, very good year!
