Spiritually Challenged…or Challenged Spiritually?

Passage: Isaiah 9:1-4, 1 Corinthians 1:10-18, Matthew 4:12-23

Epiphany is the season of light, and today’s lessons proclaim that light has come into our world. It shines on those who sit in darkness—the darkness of exile, the darkness of despair, the darkness of division, the darkness of doubt. When light shines on minds, souls, and hearts, it calls forth a response: getting up, rejoicing, and walking in God’s ways…even if that entails following a stranger down the beach into the unknown.
