"Where Were You?"

We've come full circle liturgically back to the one feast that defines the entire Christian journey and community: the appearance of the Saviour, God-in-flesh.

The questions posed last year are still relevant this year and will always be:

What does the Incarnation mean to you and I? What does this event really mean? Does it have any real meaning? Is it lost or diluted in the shadows of the other great feasts?

If we are to honest, how much or little does the Incarnation of Christ play in all parts of lives? If it doesn't, why? If it does, to what extent?

Does the concept need to be refined or its boundaries pushed further?

The backdrop to our questions this time are the readings and liturgical events of the month of Kiahk. And we would have done much reading and chanting up to January 7th. It's a reality that the theological and personal implications of this event may pass us if we don't stop and consider what we're preparing for.

It is our hope as Christians and Efmevians that we can add the little we have gained and learned this year to what we knew and experienced last year.

For the Incarnation is one event that must be absorbed and lived out. It cannot be made optional.
