Epiphany and Candlemas – Light in the Darkness

How do you make the most of important Christian festivals which fall on weekdays? What makes them special.  One year, we were celebrating Epiphany with an evening communion service.  There was a power cut.  We found a volunteer to hand pump the organ and gave everybody a candle.  This was appropriate and special.  Jesus is the Light of the World and Epiphany (the 6th January, the visit of the Wise Men) celebrates Jesus being made known to all nations.  In 2018, we shall celebrate Epiphany, as we have in recent years, with a 9.30 am Communion service at St Michael’s, followed by brunch in the church hall.  People seem to be fascinated by the fact that the Rector can scramble eggs in a microwave and there will also be bacon rolls (much more skilfully prepared) and toast and marmalade.  Do come along.  All welcome.

 

Officially, the Last Day of Christmas is Candlemas (2nd February) when Mary and Joseph took the 40 day old baby Jesus to Jerusalem for His Presentation in the Temple and Mary’s Purification.  It too, is a festival of light – Jesus the Light of the World – and traditionally the church candles were blessed at this service.  Two very elderly people – Simeon and Hannah – recognised the baby Jesus for Who He truly is and Simeon sang the song we call Nunc Dimittis.  In 2018, we shall meet at St Michael’s at 5.00 pm (after school for the children, not too late for older people who might not want to be out at night.)  There will be a “different” Communion service, followed by tea in the Rectory.  Again, all welcome.
