What does that expression bring up for you?
In a sense, New Year’s Day is no different than any other day. After all, the calendar we live by is a human construction. Yet in another way the new year always brings with it the sense of a fresh start, “another chance to get it right” as Oprah would say. So it begs the question, why not start every day with that attitude?
The journey of the magi and the feast of the Epiphany offer an opportunity for us to consider our own journey – to gaze up to the heavens and to consider what star it is that we are following. May we be guided by the Light from above to expose the darkness that stalks our souls; and to show us the way, every step of the journey, and every day of our lives.
