A sermon for Epiphany by Asst. Curate Revd Dr Nicky von Fraunhofer, delivered at the All-age Communion service on Sunday 6th January 2019 (The Epiphany).
When you seek something and then find it, it feels precious and important. If you have spent your life planning for a moment in time, then imagine how you feel when it arrives. This is how the scholars feel, when they come to see Jesus. They don’t just jump on camels and gallop five minutes down the road. They use all the skills that have, to navigate their way, taking many months, maybe even years, and most importantly, even though they don’t know where they are going, they travel in faith.
The scholars don’t know this yet, but when they see the sign of the star they respond, travelling in faith, not knowing where the journey will take them.
Reading: Matthew 2.1-12
