Reflection: Epiphany is a time when Jesus is revealed to the people. It’s a time for us to reflect on where we see Jesus each and every day of our lives.
This season of the church year is coming to a close, as next week we will begin the Lenten Season, starting on Ash Wednesday. But this Sunday, we celebrate the transfiguration, when Jesus was shining bright in white garments.
In our Psalm appointed for this Sunday, David tells us that “Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.” I really liked that line when I read it. God shines forth. To me, it reminds me that God goes ahead of me, lighting the way, guiding a darkened path. It reminds me that God is with me every step of the way.
As you go about your day and prepare for the start of the somber season of Lent, look to see where God shines forth in your life. What path is God lighting for you? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
