According to many church calendars, we are now into the Season of Epiphany, which begins on the twelfth day of Christmas, and this year was celebrated on January 6th. Traditionally, this is the day when many Christians take down Christmas decorations, and marks the end of the Christmas Season. Epiphany ends on the first day of Lent, which this year will fall on February 12th. As the first season of the calendar year, Epiphany provides us with the opportunity to renew our faith and focus on new beginnings. I hope that each of us will approach 2018 with the challenge from Philippians 2:5:"In

your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus."
