On the Feast of the Epiphany we celebrate the arrival of the magi from the east who recognized the birth of Christ in their own way, by looking at the stars, and then determinedly followed the star to seek out the new king, ultimately finding the baby Jesus with his parents Mary and Joseph. In our own lives, we are sometimes blessed to see Christ in a new way or to experience God’s love in a new way, and we call these experiences epiphanies.
For the past several months we have offered a series of articles called Faces of Our Ministries in which members of our congregation shared personal stories. These have been stories of how people found their way to St. Dunstan’s Church and of encountering Christ in their lives and ministries.
Over the five weeks of the season of Epiphany we will be sharing some very special personal stories written by Bill Britton for the Faces of Our Ministries series. Bill calls these stories his epiphanies. They are personal, intimate, and very moving stories of his struggle to live a life in God’s love.
I am grateful to know Bill and humbled that he has honored us with these wonderful stories. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did.
Yours in Christ,
P.S. If you would like to share one of your stories, either of an epiphany, or a story of encountering Christ, or perhaps a story of ministry here at St. Dunstan’s Church, we would love to see them. Just speak with or email Karen Tynes.
