Where Do We Go from Here?
by 4G Core Team member Lisa Kramme
Where do we go from here? I can imagine the Magi (or wise ones) who followed the star so many centuries ago asked that question time and time again as they made their way to Jesus. But where do WE go from here? New Year's Eve is right around the corner, and while the new year has typically been a time for setting new goals, it seems different this year. Maybe after two years of a pandemic, the shine has worn off the promise of what a brand-new year could bring. Where DO we go from here?
Epiphany is observed in the church on January 6. It's the date when we remember the Magi and their visit to the Christ child, and you can find their story in Matthew 2:1-12. At the link below, Building Faith shares a resource for people of many ages to choose a guiding word, written on a star, as a way to recall the first Epiphany and to set an intention for the coming year with a word like grace, generosity or patience. May the rest of the Christmas season and your Epiphany be blessed with peace and Spirit-led insights that guide you into the new year. https://buildfaith.org/guiding-stars-an-epiphany.../
