Epiphany


January 6, as you probably know, is Epiphany, the day that legend says the Magi came to call on Jesus. My liturgical hanging for Epiphany is simply the Magi superimposed on the Christmas hanging. I used three purples, the color of royalty, for the kings' clothing. The background is green, the appointed color for the season of Epiphany. Again, I chose batik fabrics because they remind me of stained glass. The Epiphany drapes on the Christmas hanging are reminiscent of a pastor's stole.
