Journey of the Magi – Following the Star

Epiphany, 2017

Reflecting on 2016...

...Praying it forward to 2017


Looking back on the past months of 2016,

choose an event, a time period, a transition,

or a decision, and ponder the following questions

that reflect on 2016 and then look to 2017

from the perspective of the journey of Epiphany,

the journey of the Magi...following the Star.
