Letter to the editor

Dear Liberty Dispatch, 
“The Epiphany” was celebrated by some Churches yesterday. The celebration traditionally falls on January 6 and is a Christian feast daythat celebrates the revelation of God the Sonas a human being in Jesus Christ. Western Christians commemorate principally (but not solely) the visitation of the three magi or kings to the Baby Jesus, and thus Jesus' physical manifestation to the Gentiles. Eastern Christians commemorate the baptism of Jesusin the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God. 
The question for some today maybe could God find three wise rulers these days to replicate such a scene?

there used to be an Aggie joke about not being able to have a nativity scene because they couldn't find three wise men nor a virgin.
