a personal reflection in anticipation of the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6, 2017
We, sharing our common human life’s journey, have entered a new year. We look forward. Yet, as 2016 remains fresh in our memories, we (surely, I!), on occasion, glance over our shoulders, looking back, recalling some telling, touching moment, some thrilling, perhaps, too, tragic event.
Especially at the beginning of a new year, as we evaluate the last and hold expectation for the next, as we remember yesterday and make resolution for tomorrow, we are decidedly two-faced. Not deceitful, but rather looking simultaneously in opposite directions, to the past and toward the future.
Looking back, what epiphanies do you see? What revelations, what “Aha!” moments did you experience? And how have you been changed?
More to come…
