Epiphany – Year A
Your own shall come from far away.
Yes, they have been so far away for so long that, for the longest time, it has seemed they were no longer our own.
But, finally, we lifted an eye to find our log to be a star and, upon looking again, it is clear those who were far off are far off no longer.
Our own have come home.
We have carried home to them.
Now, just so we don't get too big a head and fail to recognize our kith and kin again, whether near or far, we are to remember that "home" rises on all, it is not just ours, we are its.
May 2008 be a year of everyone being home together.
