Epiphany at Heatherhope January 8, 2012

We gather for a bonfire of greens to mark Epiphany at Heatherhope.

Heatherhope Farm will host its eighth annual Epiphany celebration on Sunday, January 8, 2012, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

We hold the celebration on a Sunday evening to allow families and those who work the opportunity to gather with us.

We were  forced to cancel the 2011 celebration when John suddenly had to go into the hospital. But his health is fine and steady now, so, Lord willing, this year’s Epiphany will be an especially good one.

Put this date and time in your calendar. Things get pretty busy around the holidays and we don’t want you to miss out on this very special event.

The evening will begin with a dinner in the house, proceed to a bonfire near the pasture, and then conclude with a simple Celtic Epiphany service in the barn. One of our sheepdogs will gather the sheep into the barn to say goodnight as we sing our “Amens.”

We ask those who plan to attend to send us an e-mail at heatherhopefarm@gmail.com or phone us at 815-895-9736. Please bring your dried Christmas trees and/or greens, and let us know if you might be able to bring a salad or dessert to share.

Epiphany at Heatherhope has become a winter tradition for many families. We are especially heartened to have young people enjoy this special time and worship in the barn. We hope you will join us and invite your friends.
