Our Advent Journey has brought us close to Bethlehem, and with our next step on this fourth and final Sunday, we will remember the three kings, also known as the Magi or wise men. Then we will step right into The Mystery of Christmas with the arrival of the Christ Child, and into the color of joyful celebration! Together we will enjoy all the beautiful light!
But then we will “back up” and finish the story of the Magi, the Godly Play story for Epiphany. The wise men came from so far in the East, that they didn’t get there in time for the birth of the baby. They were very late. And every year since, they have been late! So we celebrate their arrival on January 6th.
Our Godly Play class will not meet again until January 13th, so the Epiphany story will conclude the presentation on Sunday. When you come for your child at the end of our session, maybe you will be able to smell the lingering fragrance of frankincense and myrrh!
