“A people living in darkness has seen a great light.” —Matthew 4:16
When I was a kid, on the Feast of Epiphany, I had the esteemed job of moving the three king figures from our family manger scene into the barn to bring their gifts to Jesus. Funny thing was one of glass kings had a foot problem. Not sure if he had a broken foot or the figure was just flawed in some way, but he always tipped forward. A 30-second task turned into many minutes of frustration trying to finagle that king into a position to keep him standing up, rather than falling down flat on his face in front of Jesus.
