John’s Gospel recounts that the first of Jesus’ miraculous signs occurred at a wedding in the town of Cana. When the wine runs dry at the marriage feast, Jesus turns water to wine, allowing the celebration to continue and sparing the bride and groom the embarrassment of being unable to entertain their guests. Join us this Sunday, January 20, as we learn about God’s abundant gifts for us and our world, and gather at the table to receive a taste of the feast that is yet to come.

Time after the Epiphany: Sunday, January 6 – Tuesday, March 5
January 6 is celebrated throughout the world as the Epiphany of Our Lord. Our English word “epiphany” comes from a Greek word meaning “shining forth” or “appearance”, and (in the Western church, at least) refers to the arrival of the Magi at the home of the infant Jesus, an event by which God’s glory was made known to “the nations”. During the weeks that follow, the church reflects on what it means to live as disciples of Jesus in light of God’s revelation to the whole world. The time after Epiphany varies in length from year to year, running from January 6 until the beginning of Lent, celebrated on Ash Wednesday. This time of growth is signified in the church by the use of the color green.
