    8 January 2017 – Epiphany

    8 January 2017 – Epiphany
    January 6, 2017 Judith Simms
    Sunrise

    A recognition

    An awakening

    A wondering……..

    A shout

    AN EPIPHANY

     

    Oh Lord,

    God of the Universe

    And everything in it,

    Wake us

    Overwhelm us

    Inspire and

    Regenerate us.

     

    Sunrise

    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,

    Overflow

    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

    Kneeling

    Believing.

     

    Our own Epiphany

    Is a precious insight

    Where we believe

    Suddenly;

    Somehow knowing a little of

    The truth:

    Immanuel, God with us!

    Amen.
