Found this message from a British Priest to his parishoners and the world in honour of the celebration of the Epiphany and I thought it worth while to co-opt. As an aside in most of the Anglophone world Epiphany, was *moved* to this past Sunday (don't get me started on our Episcopal conference "moving" HDO from their proper day to the closest Sunday)
The Epiphany of the Lord
In England we celebrate this feast today.
A quick thought: compare the pro-Christ Magi who follow the star, with the anti-Christ Herod who uses scripture to discover the whereabouts of the infant.
The Magi come to worship, the anti-Christ Herod comes to destroy.
Do we build up faith through our devotion or come to destroy it by giving scandal?
Are we pro-Christ, or anti-Christ?
An interesting position, and though this priest and I would differ on perspective and intepretation on what one means to build up or destroy our faith, both in ourselves and in the lives of others. Anybody care to add their own perspective or interpretation?Sphere: Related Content
