Epiphany: The All-Vulnerable God

As we await a transfer of power in the United States, Adam Ericksen reminds us that on Epiphany, God was found not in a powerful leader but in a vulnerable child. Likewise, God's kingdom is found not in powerful violence against others, but in vulnerable love for all. "Epiphany tells us that God is not all-powerful. Rather, God is all-vulnerable. God manifests not in a violent ruler, but in a baby."

Adam Ericksen explores the Star Wars saga and Christian theology, stating, "Coincidentally, or maybe as the Force would have it, Wednesday was also the first day of the Christian season called Epiphany, which means a “manifestation,” or “appearance.” There are important connections between Star Wars and Epiphany, beyond the coincidence of Wednesday’s events."
