The Feast of the Epiphany celebrates the revelation of the light Christ brings to the world, and, in the early Church, had precedence over the celebration of His birth which we now call Christmas. This year we have a chance to share the revelation of His light through our Light of Christ tree, which will be in the Narthex on Sunday, January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany. On a table near the tree you will find envelopes and three sets of labels. The labels represent places where we can share the light of Christ. One is for Living Water International, which helps bring drinking water to those in developing countries. One is for Christian Service Community Center (CSCC) of Houston, well known in this parish for the charitable endeavors among those less fortunate. And the last label is for the Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) Fund, which directs resources to places in time of great need, such as the eastern coast of out country following Hurricane Sandy or our own Gulf coast after Ike. We ask that you put your pocket change…or a check…into one of the envelopes, place a label representing the charity of your choice on the envelope, and then hang the envelope on the tree. What we give can truly spread the light of Christ in our own community (CSCC), our nation (ERD) and the world (Living Water International).
