Peter Hamlett looks back to Christmas and the celebration of the turning point of history when BC became AD. He then looks forward to Epiphany when liturgical churches commemorate not only the visit of the wise men from the east to Bethlehem but also the baptism of Jesus. John the Baptist was a man with one message ‘Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near’. We need to respond to the call to radical repentance if we are to experience the nearness of the Kingdom and demonstrate it to others as we enter a new year.
