Presbyterians Today, January/February 2019
Celebrating Epiphany — Three Kings Day
On January 6, the church celebrates Epiphany, the day that God incarnate in Jesus Christ was manifested to the Magi — the first revelation to the Gentiles. It’s a glorious feast day but unfortunately, not a holiday that most Presbyterians traditionally observe except in passing. In the Latino tradition, though, El Día de los Reyes — Three Kings Day — is a grand and festive occasion, and it has been for centuries. There are reenactments, music, special foods, parades and more. Presbyterians Today takes us on a visit to several PC(USA) Latino congregations for a look at this beautiful celebration, and we offer several wonderful ways for any church to make this day more special and meaningful.
