The Church Sofa Guide To Church: Epiphany

According to Google, today (if I’ve got my scheduling right), is meant to be “Epiphany”. Indeed, Epiphany may be mentioned on a calendar or two around the house.

In case you’re confused about Epiphany is, I figured I would share my research into it…

It seems that Epiphany is at least one of the following:

  1. The manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi.
  2. A moment of sudden and great revelation or realization.
  3. When the three kings bothered to turn up the Nativity scene.
  4. The very first time Jesus received some late birthday presents.
  5. An excuse to keep Christmas decorations up a little longer.
  6. A swift spiritual kick to the head. (According to the Buffy The Vampire Slayer spin off – Angel).*
  7. A realisation that if the Wise Men haven’t arrived yet, you can still drink like its Christmas. Right?
  8. Evidence that Nativity play writers aren’t sure what they’re talking about. (But, I guess, the amount of lobsters that seem to appear at the birth of Jesus, should also be another clue).

Any other explanations out there?

*This does not give church leaders an excuse to give kicks to the head… I don’t think.
