And so we come to the end of Epiphany. This is my favorite liturgical season of the church year. "Matthew’s" wandering astrologers, captivated by the night sky, and lured to new places by unusual light, set the tone and direction of the season for me long before I knew very much about the New Testament from a critical point of view. Emerging from the hype of Christmas and flowing into the quiet of Lent, Epiphany represented a time for translating new beginnings into new ways of understanding and doing my life and my faith.
