Today in chapel we welcomed our new students.
We have 11 new students and their families joining our Beacon family this week!
We then focused on Epiphany.
What is epiphany? Epiphany is celebrated on the day after the 12th night of Christmas. That was 4 days ago (January 6). Epiphany is associated with the wise men. After Jesus was born, the shepherds came to worship him. However, the wise men came to visit Jesus years later, not days as we sometimes believe.
Epiphany means that something finally makes sense!
The wise men helped the rest of the world see that God had shown Himself to human beings after all those years of waiting. This video helped us understand epiphany a little better:
Our grade 5 students shared a readers' theatre about epiphany.
Arise, shine, for your light has come
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
