|We invite you to participate with Salado UMC in an Epiphany Blessing of
Homes. In some parts of the world, there is a custom of gathering in
places of residence or work to ask God’s blessing on those dwellings and upon
all who live, work, and visit there. A short ceremony is performed, and the
dwelling or workplace is marked (usually at the front or main entrance) with
sacred signs and symbols. Epiphany commemorates the visiting of the Christ
Child by the Magi with their gifts of gold, incense, and myrrh, and this
blessing ceremony is linked to that visit.
