“Appearances can be deceiving,” as the saying goes. As we
celebrate the epiphania, the “appearing” of the eternal Word of
God on earth, this is still true.
What rapturous foresight must have filled Isaiah as he wrote the
words we hear today. How, for 400 years, they must have filled the
hearts of the people of Israel with hope for the day when God’s
glory would shine on them. How deceived some must have felt
when the glory of God came to them in the lowliest and humblest
of human lives.
We have many expectations about how the divine presence will
appear among us. But we can also set ourselves up, through
these expectations, to miss the divine glory when it truly appears.
We get caught up in looking for the star, forgetting that the star is
not the divine sign, the babe is. It may take a persistent journey for
us to come upon the true appearance of God’s glory in our lives:
