Epiphany

          It has now been revealed
           that the Gentiles have become fellow heirs,
           members of the same body,
           and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.
                                 —Ephesians 3.5-6

Epiphany is the celebration of the revealing
of God in Christ to all the world,
represented by the magi from another country,
practitioners of another religion.
The “gentiles” are those who are not like us,
people of a different way.

God, help me to reveal your love, to all,
to shine with your light, and light alone—
especially to those who are not like me,
to those of a different way.

Those I disagree with, those I abhor,
are members of the same body.
It is to them I am to reveal your love
and shine with your light.
Shine in me, God of love and light,
shine in me.

Breath prayer:
                      Your light … in me
