In the traditional Church calendar, the Epiphany season observes God manifesting Himself in human form. This is the season of light: Jesus entered the world as its Light and also declared that his followers would be the light of the world. As a result I will be preaching from the first chapter of John for the next few weeks. My hope is that we will see how God manifests himself and his glory through the person of Jesus Christ (who is fully human and fully God, at the same time). The first week in January I will be introducing and beginning the conversation. The following seven weeks we will continue in the story leading into the season of Lent.
