Word for the Weekend: January 6 - Epiphany























The traditional date for Epipany was January 6 but in recent years it has been assigned to the Sunday closest to that date.  This year, January 6 falls on a Sunday!

You will find the readings and background material on them here  and hints for helping children prepare to hear the Word this weekend here.

Have you ever wondered why the gospel on Epiphany is always the same text? It's because Matthew's is the only gospel that tells the story of the visitors from the east. The illustration here, by He Qi, shows the magi being warned in a dream to return home by another route.

We all know We Three Kings but here's another Epiphany song I've grown to love over the years: Home By Another Way by James Taylor.
