EPIPHANY —meaning appearing, coming, or to give light—is the season when we remember Jesus’ mission to the world.
In the stories of Epiphany (the visit of the Magi, Jesus’ baptism, his call to follow as his disciples, his transfiguration) we see Jesus for who he is and what he is up to. Jesus is shown to risk it all for the sake of humanity and all creation.
Epiphany is also the season that reminds us of Jesus’ call to his disciples—to us—to risk it all for the sake of God’s beloved world and God’s abundant future. We are invited to give up good things to say yes to better things: getting in on what God is up to in and for the world—restoring the world to wholeness.
The colour of epiphany is light green, signifying newness of life.
