C08: The Second Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (2019)

Carla Pratt Keyes

Rev. Carla Pratt Keyes, Pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches this week’s Gospel lesson from John 2:1-11, the story of Jesus turning water into wine. “It is such a strange sign,” she begins. “It seems almost frivolous given all the need in the world, then and today.” Why does John tell this story here, at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry?  How does this story set the stage for everything else that will follow?  Click the play button for a sermon full of extravagance, certainty, gladness, and community, as shared by a master preacher.
