Readings and Prompt for Discussion

Please feel free to read the passage ahead of time. However, no preparation is required. Just show up!

The Magi follow a secret sign — a light over Bethlehem — to discover a holy light glowing within a simple stable. Epiphany is a time God’s light is revealed to us and a time when our own inner light of understanding is revealed. The Irish writer James Joyce heightened the meaning of the word ‘epiphany’ as a literary device. His character Stephen Daedalus defines epiphany as “a sudden spiritual manifestation” or heightened moments of perception. A question we can ask during Epiphanytide is, “When have we had experiences such as the Magi’s or as described by Joyce?”

During class we will read aloud the passage once: Where do you see God’s light revealed in these readings?

We will read the passage a second time: Where is a light sparked within you? How does this passage, read in the darkness of uncertain times, open you to God? What inner light of understanding is revealed?

  • The Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany, 20 February 2022
    • Jesus said, “I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.” 
  • The Last Sunday after the Epiphany, Transfiguration Sunday, 27 February 2022
    • And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him.”
