The story of the three wise men is fascinating. As we begin 2023 the story of the Wise Men is still relevant and important. Their story touches our story too. The Epiphany is celebrated all over the world and yet their feast day (January 6th) comes at a time when most people are taking down their Christmas decorations!
I have made two videos to mark this special feast day. You can just copy and paste the link

Significance Of Today
Today January 6th The Epiphany is celebrated in many parts of the world. I always have a soft spot for the three wise men! Yes we know some bits about the story and there is also so much more we don’t know too. This adds to the mystery of the Magi and the reason why of their visit. I admire their sense of adventure, determination, courage, bravery and their willingness to take a risk. I am fully convinced their story has a message for all of us too especially as we begin 2023.
