Today officially marks the visit from the Three Wise Men. I think Epiphany is one of my favorite Church celebrations, because it records a long journey by a smart person who was acting upon faith. This is a wonderful model for us. Be patient when the journey is longer than expected. Use your reason and develop your intelligence to its fullest. Don't be afraid to face the unknown. My New Year's resolution is to draw deeply from a faithful hope in the One who made and named the entire universe.
P.S. We played a "Fiddlers Three" show today at the Vintage Gardens nursing home, and kicked it off with "We Three Kings." I think they liked that.
