Sunday 1/20

This Sunday's gospel reading has Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding celebration at Cana. It describes this as the first of Jesus' signs.

Yet it might seem an odd sign. Helping a party keep going? Wouldn't something more earth-shaking be more in order, a really dramatic healing or that walking on water trick? Yet God's creative power and joyful presence come into the world in many ways. Would we recognize a sign from God if it was near us?

This Sunday we'll look and listen for signs of God among us. Paul Bellan-Boyer will preach and lead a Service of the Word.

Receive the signs of God's grace.
