Epiphany Moments: John Butt
"The Light" (Linda Tamburri)
This winter we are looking at epiphanies: stories of how people encountered God, had their eyes opened, and found the answers to some of their deepest questions. Today's story is the story of Nathanael, the know-it-all student. Nathanael couldn't believe that life's big answers would be found in Nazareth, in someone like Jesus. But what he discovered during his epiphany moment is that God moves in the unexpected places, the places where we disregard. But if we will swallow our pride, and humbly "come and see", then we find Jesus is even more than we imagined!
