8 January 2017 – Epiphany

8 January 2017 – Epiphany
January 6, 2017 Judith Simms

A recognition

An awakening

A wondering……..

A shout



Oh Lord,

God of the Universe

And everything in it,

Wake us

Overwhelm us

Inspire and

Regenerate us.



The glory of the sky!

Clouds coloured and transformed

By the awakening light.


Sometimes we stop to gaze,

Our breath caught by the glory

Surrounding us

Our minds suddenly stalling

With the thought –

‘If this is here on earth

Then what is heaven like?


Praise and thanksgiving

Bubble up,


Yet we are speechless.

Words insignificant

Thoughts beyond articulation.

Yet our spirits respond,

Our hearts lift,

Our hopes rise

And we know

Something of the Angels’ song,

The brightness of the star,

The awe and reverence of those wise men




Our own Epiphany

Is a precious insight

Where we believe


Somehow knowing a little of

The truth:

Immanuel, God with us!



Reading: Matthew 2:1-12
