A weekly Epiphany devotional post for these 5 weeks of witness. Join us!
I fell into a bit of a post-Christmas rabbit hole and missed out on two of my favorite liturgical dates on the calendar - the Adoration of the Magi and the Baptism of Christ. Still, there's so much richness in this season, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the rhythms looking, listening, praying, and doing acts of spiritual practice each day. You can read here for a brief description of the liturgical season of Epiphany, and see previous Epiphany daybook 2017 posts here.
Blessed Epiphany, friends!

Prayer for this week:
This week walk through the neighborhood where you live, work or worship. Pray the collect for this week (above), and ask God to open your eyes to the people and places He's asking you to proclaim the Good News of His salvation. Ask a friend to pray for you to answer readily to what the Spirit reveals to you during your prayer.
Don't miss the special Epiphany blog series where friends of mine from around the world, take us on a virtual walk through their own neighborhoods.
