2nd Sunday after Epiphany 2016

When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”

Last week we heard about the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan. Sunday we hear the second story of the Epiphany, the wedding at Cana. This event, the first of Jesus’ miracles, sometimes is taken as a model and reflection of word and sacrament worship.

Last Sunday I began going through the parts of our morning worship. We talked about flowers and candles and music that signal a special ceremony and meal. This week we’ll continue along that line, asking questions about how we should act in church and why, what we should wear and why, why we should come in the first place and what we might hope to get out of it.

As a worshiping community we train ourselves and our children  (in Christ’s spirit) for life qualities and capacities that are deep and fine and human (and increasingly rare) such as reverence, compassion and wonder. More on this Sunday.

The flowers on Sunday will be given by Mary Ann Borkowski in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Last week I challenged us to fill in every week of the flower chart, so that we don’t have to make multiple announcements through the year or depend on a few people to bring flowers. Every one of you can do this. It’s a simple, important little ministry of grace and hospitality. You may email me and I’ll put your name on the sheet.

The choir rehearses at 8:45 am.

Bring in pudding, cake and brownie mixes for the Wayland Food Pantry.

Rejoicing Spirits at 4 pm Sunday.
