The second Sunday after Epiphany reminds us of a wedding in Cana. A wedding—probably unremarkable in most ways—that revealed an unexpected side of Jesus. This wedding tells of the first of Jesus’ miracles. Although incarnation is the grounding of our connection with him, the gospel writers want to highlight the connection Jesus had with his father. The fruit of his relationship with the father produces miracles!
Unexpected miracles in the midst of uncertainty.
Unimagined miracles are the heart of faith. They happen every day, as Father, Son and Spirit are at play in the world and in us.
This week, I offer you wedding music, both traditional and unexpected. Enjoy.
