Are you ready to party? I have to confess I have not really been in much of a partying mood lately. It seems every time we start to get some momentum going to move into this church's future, something gets in the way. Sometimes it's pandemic-related, but there comes a time when we have to stop blaming the pandemic for everything, I think. That doesn't mean, however, I feel any less frustrated.
In the midst of my frustration, this week's assigned readings bring us a story of Jesus at a party. Not just any party, but a wedding! This is a celebration of life, a time of great joy. And Jesus is right there in the middle of it, enjoying himself, his family, and his friends. Join us on Sunday in the sanctuary, online, or through WRAC-TV to hear what this story might have to say to us now. If you could use a sign of hope, this might be it. See you in church, Church! - Pastor Jo Anne
P.S. We are still planning for a potluck meal and workshop with Rev. Susan Nienaber next Sunday, January 23rd. I hope you will join us!
