Epiphany - Year B
Arise, shine - your light has come, so emulate it.
The light of creation came for its own sake, but not for that alone. Creation’s light also arrived in anticipation of all that was to come. The gift of life is not just as a chip off the old G*D block, but to live as though G*D.
Lift up your eyes: see and be seen; see and be radiant.
Don’t be misled by the gold and fankincense commonality. The connection goes deeper, to light shine from without and within. Be blessed by light and bless with it.
