Second Sunday after Epiphany
Virtual Worship ONLY (due to weather)
Scripture includes: Isaiah 62:1-5 and John 2:1-11
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Extravagance and Abundance”
It seems pretty odd that Jesus’s first miracle in the Gospel of John is saving a wedding feast by changing water into wine. Jesus wasn’t healing or saving souls – just the hosts from embarrassment. But the extravagance of the quality of wine and the abundance of it points us toward something important about the Kingdom of God: through Jesus, humanity receives God’s abundance, God’s extravagance, God’s joy.
Today is the Second Sunday After Epiphany in the Christian year. Epiphany (January 6) celebrates the manifestation of God in Jesus Christ. The Season of Epiphany continues this emphasis, calling attention to the words and deeds of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The liturgical color is green, representing new life and growth.
