Epiphany is upon us—the discovery of the Christ child and the season of discovery that follows. As I sat contemplating what to write to you today, the U2 song I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For came to mind. It stirs up that restlessness, the perennial search for meaning and transcendence. Just when we think we’ve found the answer or “gotten there,” we find that we haven’t, and the search continues.
As they say, it’s not about the terminus or destination, it’s the search and the journey.
What are you seeking? Who or what is trying to detour or put an end to your journey? How do you feel God guiding you?
I look forward to seeing you in person or on Zoom this Sunday at 10 am as we look not just at the wise ones but the flight into Egypt, Herod and the murder of the innocents, and Joseph’s subsequent dreams that lead to settling Nazareth.
Get out your maps!
