Yesterday I uploaded to our YouTube channel Episode One in the 2018 A.D. version of Epiphany: the Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles. The series has been revised and expanded into three episodes. Episode One is focused on the sharp difference between the secular and Church meaning of Epiphany and the timing and manner of the development of Epiphany as its own Season in the Church Calendar. The series includes a revised script and many new illustrations and adjustments to format, including more slides, more white background per slide, and cross-references to related AIC videos, publications and podcasts.
Epiphany: the Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles was the first new series I introduced under the Anglican Internet Church banner following my retirement from pulpit ministry. As noted above, I’ve decided to stretch the series into one additional episode. The change allows for more focus on the individual Sundays in Epiphany season, plus Epiphany Eve. Episode Two, which will be released in late January, is focused on Epiphany (both Eve and Day) and the First Sunday after Epiphany and Second Sunday after Epiphany. Episode Three is focused on the remaining Sundays after Epiphany. The music for Epiphany season in the AIC Bookstore publication The St. Chrysostom Hymnal, recently reformatted into a single volume, is discussed in all episodes of the series.
Later in A.D. 2018, I will introduce video series in the same format and with the same objective of providing easy-to-understand explanations of the Church Calendar for Gesima (Pre-Lent), Lent, Easter, and Trinity seasons.
In the next 10 days, I will complete and upload Episode Six in The War on Christianity series. Episode Six will be the first of two episodes explaining the Canticle Te Deum Laudamus in the context of a “First Line of Defense” in the on-going war on Christianity (for which there is growing evidence each and every day somewhere in the world).
