The ornaments have been returned to their box, the tree has been taken down, gifts are put away, and the lights have been stored for another year. Christmas is over. But is it, really?

Suddenly we have an epiphany. Jesus, in John 8:12, says, “I am the light of the world.” He reigns forever more! It’s our big “Ta-da!” moment. This season of the church year — Epiphany — shows us that the salvation Jesus brought to this world at His birth was for all people — Jew and Gentile alike. Thanks be to God for that great blessing.

As your LWML group enters the winter months, take time to reflect not only on the birth of Christ, but also on His baptism, His miracles, and His teaching. Include Bible study as a frequent and regular part of every gathering, as together we learn from His Word.

Our LWML website has many Bible studies from which to choose: single lesson studies, multi-session studies, and Quarterly studies. More can be found here.
