The Lord Delights in You

Second Sunday after the Epiphany
Scripture: Isaiah 62:1-5

The return from Exile back to their homeland was not pretty. God’s people had yearned for ages to return home. But when they got there, the country was in disrepair. They began to lose hope. This passage reminds them (and us) that God is not finished – there is still hope! God promises restoration and abundance and reassures us (again) that we are loved and that it will get better.

Welcome to the Wedding Banquet

Second Sunday After the Epiphany, Year C
Scripture: John 2:1-11

Jesus begins his ministry not behind a pulpit, but at a party: a wedding banquet, the most extravagant celebration a village could contain. “They feast upon the abundance of your house; you give them drink from the river of your delight.” (Psalm 36:8) And the best wine is saved for the last.
