Epiphany and Eco-Justice

Yesterday marked the celebration of Epiphany – the traditional recognition of Christ’s revelation to the Gentiles, or the Theophany for the Eastern church – the celebration of Jesus’ baptism and the revelation of Jesus as the Son of God. Either way, it is a celebration of the gift of Christ to this world – and has incredible bearing as we turn toward a new year of work on eco-justice.

We live in a broken world – a world where God’s Creation is calling out for healing and for rebirth. And it is just this gift that this day of celebration is there for!  Our efforts to address climate change, to respond to environmental justice, to bring healing to our lands and waters, to maintain the biodiversity of Creation, or to make our communities more healthy – we are responding to the gift of this holiday.

Check out the resources we have for download, and in response to this glorious gift we have gotten in Christ, plan an Earth Day celebration. Take steps to bring the healing that comes to this world in Christ to the world around you. In the celebration of Epipany or Theophany, celebrate the coming of God into this world – the revelation of who Jesus Christ is!  And bring healing to Creation.
