A special edition of the Soul Cafe
Today, January 6 is when much of Christianity observes the Feast of the Epiphany, a day on which we remember the visit of the Magi, or wise men from the East, who sought to give homage to the newborn savior and shower him with valuable gifts. This event is the inspiration for our modern tradition of gift-giving during Christmas. Pictured below is a newspaper article - yes a real newspaper article - about a wise man from the East Side of New York CIty, who in the age of hi-tech social media, has done something special with one of the oldest of all social media platforms - the sign at the front of the church!
I've received many comments about the pictures of the sign outside my church here in Croton-on-Hudson, NY. My inspiration for doing that came from my internship work at the New York City church mentioned in this article. I thought it might be a nice way to spend some time today in the Soul Cafe.
