A thought for the season

Epiphany. Camels swaying out of the east, over the stony desert. Starlight behaving unnaturally. Lordly strangers prostrating themselves before a Jewish baby. Revelation - and recognition. Whatever we think of the traditional images, the last is what still strikes us. In our lives, in our relationships, in our knowing.

And recognition can be the most elusive.
