In the days that lie ahead, we invite you to share in an adventure of vision. Epiphany is about experiencing God’s Holy Adventure in all things from the daily tasks of parenting, working, and service to remarkable experiences of insight and mysticism. In Epiphany, we open ourselves to Divine omnipresence and Divine omni-activity–to the Holy One who is present in each breath and who guides in every encounter. The God of scripture is dynamic and relational.

Loving the Wonder-Full
The passages for the Second Sunday after the Epiphany portray the many dimensions of God’s presence in our lives. In all situations and encounters, God is present as the giver and receiver of the Abundance of life. Despite what is going on in our lives, there are no godless or godforsaken moments. As Isaiah 6:4 proclaims, “the whole earth is full of God’s glory.”

What does it mean to be called by God? In the Isaiah passage, the prophet speaks of a divine vocation that began with his conception. Within the matrix of possibilities, God envisaged a broad plan for the prophet even before he emerged from his mother’s womb.
