'Epiphany, also Theophany, Denha, Little Christmas, or Three Kings’ Day, is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ. In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, and thus Jesus’ physical manifestation to the Gentiles. —Wikipedia

He also leads a second congregation, Holy Nativity Episcopal Church in Kinsley, and his list of additional part-time jobs includes municipal prosecutor in Dodge City and county attorney for Hodgeman County.

Outgoing Board Chair Neel Lane (Province VII) wrapped up his eight-year term with a message for the New Year. The San Antonio-based attorney imparted final reflections on his journey with Episcopal Relief & Development, which took him from relief work in the U.S. to a pilgrimage to Ghana. The church thanks him for his dedicated service to the organization and wishes him all the best in his continuing work in 2019 and beyond. Read the story HERE.

The Episcopal Church is responding to the Federal Government shutdown, both with grass roots help and advocacy in Washington. The church’s Office of Government Relations (OGR) has called for an end to the shutdown, saying that “shutting down our government is a failure of leadership and recognition of the responsibility that comes with being an elected official.” Basing its comments on church policy as set by General Convention, OGR has said Congress and the Administration need to work together to address legitimate security needs, to ensure the government’s legal responsibility to process asylum seekers, treat all migrants with humanity and respect, and enact policies to address and alleviate the root causes and conditions that drive forced migration from Central and South America.
