Childhood of Christ

Last week, we went to the church as a class. We looked at the nativity, talked about the wise men coming from other countries.   The 3 wise men (3 kings) were some of the first people to worship Jesus. They were from different countries and didn’t speak the Hebrew language.  God opened salvation to all peoples not just the Jewish people!

We had a prayer service for the Epiphany and lit a candle for our intentions (friends and family who may be sick, grieving or rejoicing) We stood in front of the altar near the Tabernacle, Baptism font, and the Ambry (Blest Are We p.120)

A votive candle or prayer candle is a candle, typically white or beeswax yellow, intended to be burnt as a votive offering in an act of Christian prayer

Presentation of Jesus

Presentation of Jesus in the temple 8 days after his birth. That is when His name was given. There he was greeted by Simeon and Anna.

Luke 2:21-38.
