Questions for Epiphany

Today we celebrate the arrival of the wise men.  How can we be wise?

They come bearing gifts.  What gifts do we yearn for today?

They come because they've studied the skies and thus, they recognize a new star when they see it.  What do we need to study?

An aspect of Epiphany that is less celebrated:  travel, both the intended travel and the fleeing in fear.  What travel plans do we need to make to gain our epiphanies?

Let us take one more Christmas moment, before we bid the season goodbye.  Let us ponder the greatest gift of all, the baby in the manger.

Let us pray for the wisdom to follow our stars, though they may lead us in unexpected directions.
