Midway Christian Church will celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany with our 13th Annual Epiphany Dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, January 6, in our Fellowship Hall. A special Epiphany Program will be presented in the sanctuary, after which the Three Wise Men will lead us next door for the feast - a fabulous Ouita Michel menu of medieval fare.
The Feast of the Epiphany dates to the third century and celebrates the manifestation of God in the birth of Jesus Christ, and the visitation of the Three Wise Men, or Magi, to Jesus soon after his birth. Historically, the Feast of the Epiphany also has marked the baptism of Christ and the miracle at Cana.
The festive buffet features a medieval menu prepared using ingredients available during the 12th century. Appetizers include pide (ancient Turkish flatbread), shiraz bi-Buqual (medieval cheese and walnut dip), spiced toasted almonds, spelt bread and olives. Main course of roasted hog stuffed with sausages, roasted onions with balsamic vinegar and honey, honey-roasted chicken, saffron rice pilaf, carrot pudding with currants and dates, sweet-and-sour cabbage and lentils, and salad of lettuces, fennel, mint, parsley, flowers and egg. Our dessert will be king cake.
