Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
There’s nothing quite like getting up on the Downs in the pre-dawn when it’s really dark, and then seeing the eastern sky gradually brighten over Brighton, moving from deep blue to pink to red to yellow. A glorious sunrise.
The Bible sees Christmas, and especially the Epiphany (which Anglicans remember this week) as a sunrise. Epiphany? That’s when we remember the wise men coming to visit the baby Jesus. Although we traditionally think of the wise men coming on Christmas night with the shepherds and angels, it could have been later. Much later. But whenever it actually happened, here are some men from the East, not part of God’s people or from his promised land. This Christmas message is for the world. And this Christmas message is a sunrise for the world.
Isaiah 6:03 describes it with these words “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”
As we head into 2021, and with the virus causing all sorts of challenges, not just in the UK but globally, let’s be claiming this promise in our prayers. And what a great promise it is! The wonderful news of Christmas goes with us into this year and Jesus will be drawing people from all nations to his wonderful light.
