Homilies on Epiphany

You searched for sermons preached on: Epiphany, Cycle A, B, C
 
An Illogical Course  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: Epiphany is about the surprising and seeming illogical courses God lays out before us. God’s way is not the course of routine, of ritual, of tradition, of habit. And if we follow God’s will, chances are, our lives won’t take a logical course. While we search for meaning in the routine, God moves in an unexpected direction. Epiphany calls us to listen for and celebrate the unexpected and surprising paths God wants us to take.

Chosen to Follow the Lord  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: Jesus’ epiphany celebrates his manifestation to the world, but it also demonstrates how he was recognized for his unique role in salvation history. As Jesus was sent by God into our world and was recognized for who he was, so the Lord has chosen us to be his followers. Let us hear the Master’s call and willingly chose to follow him.

Getting from Star to Stable  Click here Click title to view sermon Isaiah 60: 1–6

God as Camel Driver  Click here Click title to view sermon Isaiah 60: 1–6
Summary:  The familiar camels of Christmas cards and manger scenes are mentioned in the First Lesson for Epiphany. Camels in reality can be tough animals to deal with. But human beings are also pretty tough animals for God to handle, always wandering away and resisting God’s call, as God’s dealings with both Israel and the Gentiles show. The fact that God does deal with us, that the fulfillment of God’s promises depends on God and not on our co-operation, is why there is hope for Israel and the Gentiles and the whole creation

Going Home a Different Way  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 2: 1–12
Summary: While each year, nativity scenes depict the wise men at the stable, their visit may have come as much as two years later. Who were these mysterious men? Where did they come from? Did they know their gifts would hold as much significance as the church places on them? We can still learn much from these men who came seeking and worshiping the king of the Jews.

Seeing the Light and Sharing the Light  Click here Click title to view sermon Isaiah 60: 1–6
Summary:  We don’t want to have to live in darkness, and we long for light. The promise of the Isaiah text and the coming of the Magi point to the spreading of Israel’s light to the whole world. Those who come to Christ are able to see the world as it really is, and are called to carry his light to others. Because he is the light of the world, we are to be lights to the world

Summary: Every house has its rules, whether it’s for the way we play games, the way we serve burgers or the way we make each other family. In his letter to the Ephesians, the apostle talks about the “house rules” of God’s grace, which make us, regardless of where we’ve come from or how we got here, “fellow heirs, members of the same body, and sharers in the promise in Christ Jesus ...”
