December 31, 2012: An Epiphany In Me

Robert E. Webber

Bob recounts attending his first Epiphany service: “I realized that an epiphany was occurring for me right there in the service of worship. I was seeing the glory of God in Christ face-to-face. This manifestation, this epiphany, was not to be a thing of the past, something that happened two thousand years ago, but was to be an appearance now in the body of Christ assembled, an epiphany in me. I had been called from light to darkness, and now I was to be a manifestation of Christ. My part was to respond, to say yes to the calling, to commit my life to be a center through which the Epiphany could be extended beyond the crib to the world of my everyday experience.”
