Epiphany calls us to go and share the light and love within us, with all God’s children. As the light inside us grows brighter, others begin to notice the light within their own selves. We begin to see all of creation, bending toward the light within! Together, we shine brighter and brighter. Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West invites us into this season.
