Mt. Olive Lutheran will celebrate the Epiphany of Our Lord on Sunday, January 6 at two services: 8:30 and 10:45 a.m. According to Gail Ramshaw in Sundays & Seasons:
“The word Epiphany means ‘showing forth,’ and it names the day that the church tells Matthew’s story of the magi from foreign lands who follow the light of the star and thus “see” Jesus as Christ. Their gifts are symbols: gold, because they honor Jesus as the king; frankincense, because they worship Jesus as divine; and myrrh, because they are readying for his death.”
O come, let us adore him!
