Year C - Epiphany or Guiding Gift
January 6, 2016
Lift up your eyes. How else are you going to hitch your life to a star?
Now that you are at least in a position to be hitched—Arise, Shine! [Be careful here, the “S” is but one row below a “W” and it is hard to shine while whining.]
To best see your star it will be important to not let false distinctions get in your way. References to Midian and Ephah, sons of a later wife of Abraham, and Kedar and Nebaioth, sons of Abraham’s son Ishmael, are ways of distancing oneself from lesser relatives. Such self-privilege is like a cataract fuzzing-up your star-sight.
Here is a reminder of how interconnected we are.
Can you turn your bizarre family into friends and loved ones? If so you’re hitched to a rising star.
